About me

Hey, I’m Alvin Bryan, I’m a developer advocate and creative coder. A few tidbits about me:

  • I worked for a remote company before it was cool.
  • I love listening to podcasts and audio drama.
  • Expat, mediocre musician, hoping that one will change someday.
  • I love learning things on the Internet.
  • My favourite TV show is Billions, especially season 2 to 4. You can watch it on Showtime in the US and NowTV in the UK.
  • I like privacy and owning my data.

As a coder

I’m a developer advocate at at Contentful. Before that, I worked on design systems, charts and editorial tools at Dow Jones/The Wall Street Journal. Previously, I worked on award-winning games, maps and data visualisations.

I’m very UX-driven, happiest when collaborating with designers and pushing boundaries as a team.

I have years of experience helping people install Sourcetree.
