Welcome [K Cartlidge]

K Cartlidge

Author and Web Developer


I mainly write about Code and Creative Writing, with the occasional review thrown in for good measure. For development I usually code in either C# or Node.js, but have dabbled with GoLang, Python and Ruby. In particular, I am in the process of switching my own stuff to Go given it’s evident superiority over Node.
