I am a software developer in Wokingham, Berkshire, United Kingdom. I graduated from the University of Warwick with a first class masters degree in Physics in 2014.
I am quite frugal with my spending, and I spend quite a lot of time trying to identify the best value equipment. This post explains my current software development workstation and shows where the equipment I have selected can be purchased.
