About Coded Structure

Welcome to my website! Coded Structure is my slice of the web, where I put various thinkings and projects mostly related to technical topics. My technical interests range far and wide, which means they aren't particularly deep anywhere. Proof-of-concept is about as far as I get before something else has piqued my interest and sent me in a different direction. But there are a few bigger-picture things I'm always interested in:

  • making pictures and music from computer programs (raytracing, opengl, audio synthesis & DSP, MIDI)
  • operating system & programming language design and implementation
  • computing as a branch of mathematics

My tools of choice tend to be Python, C++, and JavaScript, along with PIC microcontrollers and the 74HC series, for getting my hands dirty.

About Me

I'm located in Coventry, UK, which is the furthest city form the coast of our lovely island, and where everyone claims the sky is only ever grey. But the sun is shining as I write this, so it can't be as bad as all that.

I'm a Christian, and passionate about seeing God glorified though Jesus Christ, and His Church. I'm also both a scientist - I want to find out about things - and an engineer - to create new things out of old. Sure there is sometimes tension between these (all three - and that ignores awesome stuff like family and friends!). But that's the fun of it all :-)

The technologist's dilemma

What has been is what will be,
and what has been done is what will be done,
and there is nothing new under the sun.
~ Ecclesiastes 1:9

So I do it for the fun, and keep reminding myself of that.


I'm interested in any feedback, good or bad - but preferably helpful!

Soli Deo Gloria

'To the only wise God be glory forevermore through Jesus Christ! Amen.'
