You can usually find me on Twitter. And you can sometimes find me at web development conferences, where I might be talking about development techniques. I blog here less frequently than I'd like, but manage it a little more often on the Netlify blog.

Wherever you find me, online or in the real world, please do come and say a friendly hello.

Speaking of support, they are also mindful of those who currently find themselves out of work.

I love this spirit! https://t.co/6RhN1LsGBg

Lots of events are shifting to being online right now, but I'm particularly excited about this one. The team behind it are really giving thought to maintaining a sense of community as it goes virtual.

I can't imagine it will be anything other than wonderful.
