My name is Andrew Williams, and I live near Edinburgh, Scotland. I am a software engineer, open source contributor and entrepreneur.
Since graduating from Computer Science at Edinburgh University in 2003 I have been a software consultant for Java, iOS and Go projects. A company founder, technical director, CTO and operations officer. I’ve been part of the leadership teams at Sonatype, Heads Up Development, Kotikan and Administrate. My current business is called FossFish where we are working to help get open source software into businesses to aid collaboration.
On top of computers I enjoy music, especially singing. I have spent time singing with the Edinburgh Festival Chorus and the RSNO Chorus as well as the National Youth Choir of Scotland, National Youth Choir of Great Britain and the Aberdeen Youth Choir.
If working on software and business did not keep me busy enough I also work with many open source projects including EFL and Fyne graphical toolkits, the Enlightenment window manager and an IDE to support it’s development.
