I'm Elliot Blackburn. I'm a Software Engineer at Just Eat in Bristol, UK.

What I write about

Some of my writings are short, and some of them are much longer essays. I write about anything that interests me and I feel like sharing. Sometimes that is my life and faith, but mostly it's software, products, and leadership.

On occasion I manage to convince others, who are much better people than I, to write guest articles! I'd highly recommend reading them, as they often provide far more insight than my own ramblings.

Where I work

I'm a software engineer at Just Eat, we're primiarly a .net shop and our platform lives and breaths on top of the AWS platform. We exercise AWS and .net to it's max but my day-to-day technologies are:

  • .Net core
  • AWS DynamoDB
  • AWS SNS / SQS
  • AWS Lambda

On the side I'm an engineer on the Gurn project at Gradient, at the moment my focus is building gurn.io and other platforms. We use a huge range of technology, but I spend most of my time working with:

  • Nodejs
  • PostgreSQL
  • Docker, Kubernetes, Google Cloud Platform, and Amazon Web Services
  • GCP Functions
  • Git + GitHub
