My name is Adrian Smith and I’m a software engineer living in Dublin, Ireland.

I started programming BASIC on the C64 back when the Terminator 2 pack was the must have Christmas present and Zzap! 64 was the magazine of the day. After the C64 I moved on to the Amiga 600 and AMOS Basic. The main languages in my toolbox today are Python, Ruby, Java, and Javascript.

My main interests are programming, Linux, cloud related technologies, and the internet in general.

My claim to fame is the password manager Universal Password Manager.

Aside from technology I practice taekwondo and aspire to playing the piano and guitar.

You can contact me via email or to see what I’m up to take a look on GitHub, Twitter, LinkedIn, or pinboard.
