I’ve only just realised that I forgot to do a proper #introduction when I first joined this instance, so here goes!
I’m Tom! I am originally from Japan, and come from a visual arts and performance background. I’m currently teaching as a high school teacher in Aotearoa, NZ.
Lately I have found a lot of inspiration from people involved in communities such as this one, and have been working on small web projects in my spare time. Thank you for having me!

If you're at all into Scala, take a look at Metals (A language server for Scala). I've had the privilege to work on it lately, and I love the idea behind the language server protocol (https://microsoft.github.io/language-server-protocol/). It's also been cool to work on something I didn't think I had the skills understand.

Betteridge's law of headlines is an adage that states: "Any headline that ends in a question mark can be answered by the word no".
Recently finished front/back-end dev on a new catalogue for this bookstore in Montreal (working with a local communications co-op). They were previously keeping records for 200,000 books in Wordpress (!).
Before this project I had never implemented someone else's frontend, always my own, I think my life must have been luxurious…
Proud of the site anyway, Rails/Elasticsearch/pure CSS/cron jobs/blablabla
