About

Hi, I’m Elliot Jackson!

I build software for fun and profit, taking on mainly iOS design and/or development projects and server-side contract work. My preferred languages to work with are Swift on iOS, Elixir and the Phoenix framework on the web and Rust for, well, anything really. It’s such a great language!

I also write a fair amount of software for fun, the details of which you can read about here. Some of my favourites are Distil, an image-based colour palette generator; Orbit, a MetaWeblog API server implementation; and Thea, a website generation and server performance experiment.

Away from the computer my two passions in life are skiing and rugby, I also enjoy powerlifting and spend an inordinate amount of time looking for the tennis balls my Springer Spaniels lose.
