Welcome to qubyte.codes! The personal site of Dr. Mark Stanley Everitt (qubyte). My pronouns are he/him/his.
By day I spend much of my programming time writing Node.js, Ruby, and Scala applications, with a little browser stuff when I can.
I'm also interested in the social side and ethics of software development. I was a regular mentor at Codebar in Brighton. I've been taking a break for a while since I'm a dad now, but intend to return later!
I lived and worked in Tokyo for a number of years, initially as an academic (I hold a PhD in quantum optics and quantum information), and later as a programmer. I speak a little Japanese and continue to study the language.
