My name is Luke Lanchester, a programmer & self-confessed geek living in the heart of England. Since 2006 I have been telling computers what to do, both online and off. In that time I have designed and developed platforms used by millions of people every day and released code that has empowered hundreds of thousands of businesses and users around the world.
As a principal engineer at 383, an award-winning digital products and services company, I have architected and built websites, apps, platforms and products for some of the biggest names in industry. With a combination of speed and efficiency borne of experience across multiple disciplines, I have been able to roll out market-leading results within weeks instead of months or years.
Companies I have had the honour of working with include the world's largest hotel chain, Hilton Worldwide; the oldest national broadcaster, the BBC and the FTSE 100 multi-billion dollar investment company Hammerson PLC, to name just a few. Projects have ranged from apps released to market within days to internal APIs that facilitate business-critical services.
As a true geek however, I never stop learning. In my own time I have created apps and code libraries that are shared freely on the web, enabling thousands of other developers and small-business owners to take advantage of the amazing power of the Internet to reach their audiences. These tools have been downloaded and used hundreds of thousands of times.
