Hi, I'm CDA Aaron Powell, you might remember me from such roles as a Readify consultant, organiser of DDD Sydney or presenting at events.

My background is web development, in the 15 years I've been in the industry I've done server side and client side development, which I guess makes me a full-stack developer these days. But my passion is front end, whether it's vanilla JavaScript, React or that new framework released in the last 5 minutes.

Mostly I like to have fun with techonolgy, whether it's using Docker in ways you probably shouldn't, writing your own number type in C# or generally embracing stupid ideas.

My goal is to make sure people have fun, grown in what they do and are all round better developers.
