About me

Hey, I’m Alvin Bryan, I’m a developer advocate and front-end developer/engineer. A few tidbits about me:

  • I worked for a fully remote company before most people did.
  • I love listening to podcasts and audio drama.
  • I love learning things on the Internet.
  • My favourite TV show is Billions, especially season 2 to 4. You can watch it on Paramount+ (UK/US).
  • I like privacy and owning my data.

As a coder

I normally work in developer relations, but right now I’m hacking on a side project named SpriteMoose. Before that, I was a developer advocate at Contentful. Before that, I worked for Dow Jones/The Wall Street Journal, on design systems, charts and editorial tools. Previously, I worked on games, maps and data visualisations.

I’m very UX-driven, happiest when collaborating with designers and pushing boundaries as a team. I believe that working as a developer is more than writing code. There’s a lot to be said about a person’s work ethic and collaboration style.

I have years of experience helping people install Sourcetree.
