The Erstwhile Developer is the digital personification of Steve Haffenden a Development team lead at Atlassian in Sydney, Australia. Steve has been working in and around web development since the late nineties. Now hurtling into his late 30's Steve is concerned that he may be losing touch with all things web and this is his way of trying to keep himself up to date.

When not working Steve enjoys cycling, hand tool woodworking and writing about himself in the third person. All the posts on the Erstwhile Developer are the product of Steve's somewhat errant imagination and should not be taken as gospel. You can and should question everything written here. Needless to say the opinions expressed on this site are Steve's own and do not reflect those of his employer, friends, family or likely the internet at large.

Any similarties to anyone living or dead are entirely co-incidental.
