James Ridgway - Software Engineer

Hello!

Hi there. I'm James Ridgway — Software Engineer. I currently work as CTO at The Curve. I'm your typical engineering nerd, so have a look at the projects I've been tinkering on and what I've been rambling on about in my blog.

I enjoy sharing my work, ideas, projects and experiments with others, so please leave comments, or feel free to contact me directly as I'd love to hear from you.
