Hi there! My name is Karl Nicoll, and this is my website. I’m sure you have many questions, such as:

Who are you?

My name is Karl, and I’m a software developer based out of Cambridge in the United Kingdom. I like motor sports, long distance running, most kinds of music, movies and gaming.

I’m a Linux enthusiast and I run Arch Linux on most of my PCs at home. I program cross-platform C++ for a living at Activ Financial Systems, but like to dabble in many different languages including Python, Ruby, C#, PHP and Javascript. In previous work I have also served as an ASP.NET and PHP web developer. I’m qualified with a BSc in Computer Programming, which I achieved at Teesside University with first class honours.

I’m a bit of a PC gamer, and dig a game of Team Fortress 2 or Counter-Strike in my downtime as well as running and working out. I like to watch a bit of Football and enjoy watching motorsport, particularly DTM.

What is this place?

This is mainly a place where I keep my thoughts and links to my various different projects. You can find most of my projects on my Github or Bitbucket accounts.

Pirates or Ninjas?
