Hey there, I’m Angus.

I work with online communities on software and product development.

I’ve worked with a wide range of clients, from large enterprises with big communities, to individuals just starting out.

Software Development :man_technologist:

I have over 4 years experience working with Discourse, the leading open source community platform (and the platform this site uses). I also have software development experience with Wordpress, Ghost and a number of other tools used build online communities.

I’ve built over 40 Discourse plugins, a number of which are popular and widely used. I mentor a number of other open source developers and am active in the open source community.

I am available to work on:

  • Feature development, including development of new Discourse plugins.

  • Style changes, including development of new Discourse themes.

  • Modification of on any of my existing open source work.

Product Development :man_office_worker:

I have over 4 years experience as a product manager in different venture-backed startups (check me out on LinkedIn to learn more). Combined with my experience in software development and my history of involvement in open source communities, I can provide a unique perspective on the development of your community product.

I can advise on:

  • What features your community needs to prioritise now, and in the future.

  • How to start your community, including what platforms are suitable.

  • How to run your community, including what metrics you should care about.

  • How you can use off-the-shelf and open source solutions to save money and time.
