There is always sunshine. Far above the grey sky

About me

Hi, I'm Derek Lawless. I'm a software developer and technologist living and working in Dublin, Ireland.

I've been tinkering with computers since 1988 when I found a Commodore C64C under the Christmas tree.

I've worked professionally at every level of software development over the past two decades - quality assurance, web design, engineering, user experience design, architecture, and startup CTO. I'm currently working in Enterpriseland and on other projects.

This is my personal website, opinions are my own.

The lyric on the page header is from A Fire In The Forest by David Sylvian.


Mostly private repos.
My career in words.
Stack Overflow
I participate rarely as I find the community has declined over time.
Cross posting.
Markedly little outrage.
