Contestant highlight: Gareth Midwood
“Last year I entered Code in the Dark with the intention of having a bit of fun and it did not disappoint! The venue, the audience, the voting, the lasers.. this is as close as a developer can get to being a rock star (whilst still hiding safely behind a screen)”
I’m a former fullstack (before it was cool!), former backend, former developer who moved on to the world of management, meetings and emails. Sometimes I dabble in code, and occasionally that involves tickling some CSS into shape. I’m more than capable of moving some boxes around a page, but for the love of God don’t ask me to design anything, or make anything move..
