Hi there! My name is Will Velida. This corner of the internet is occupied by my blog (Which I’m sure you figured out). I’m a first-class honours graduate of Information Systems from the University of Auckland, but I’m back in the UK after 6 years living in New Zealand. This blog contains my own opinions and content. That being said, I reserve the right to evolve on issues that I see fit. I’m excited about technology, civics, sports and mathematics (even though I suck at it!).
I’m starting a new journey at Makers Academy, where I’m training to be an awesome developer!
I do have email, but I’m keeping that to myself. DM me on Twitter and we can have a chat there 🙂
In a previous life, I was on a youth contract at the Canterbury Rugby Union playing as a prop forward. After I was tired of being beaten up every weekend, I decided to move to Auckland and get an education. I’ve worked for some pretty cool companies, including Microsoft and Orion Health. I have also been a bit of a political junkie, working as a Media Officer for UoA’s student union, AUSA. I tend to avoid politics these days.
