RIP Ade Attwood

October 2016 – July 2022

 

Ade joined us as a junior developer with no previous experience, education or degrees. In fact at the time he was working on this building as a plasterer:

He saw this tweet:

And this job ad:

And applied with this project code:

We took a risk, gave him a job and since he has risen up to become our lead developer, chief pusher of new technology, chief denier of Git pushes and all round amazing coder and technologists. This post are some excerpts from his last show and tell.
