Hello, this is the personal blog of Gene Taylor

Me I am a software developer from Sydney, Australia. I work for Atlassian on the team responsible for JIRA integrations.

I studied Philosophy of the University of Otago, obtaining a Bachelor of Arts and postgraduate Diploma. I then turned my focus to Computer Science where I picked up a Diploma for Graduates and a graduate software developer position at Atlassian.
