Hi! I’m Jake Hendy, a Technical Lead working at the Met Office.

At the Met Office I lead a team building the data platform which delivers to the Met Office website and mobile app. Watch this space 😋 I’m a huge proponent of monorepos, continuous delivery, and infrastructure as code. Not in code, not on production™. We build on AWS, using CloudFormation, with services written in Java with Python doing work here and there.

In my spare time, I’m a qualified BodyCOMBAT instructor and enjoy going to the gym. My girlfriend and I have 2 pet rabbits, my mum and I have 2 cats and a myriad of tropical fish. If I’m not programming—at work or at home—at the gym or spending time with my family, I’m probably squeezing in some game time on something like Battlefield 1, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Battlefield 4, Cities: Skylines, Grand Theft Auto: V, or something else! Occasionally my girlfriend and I play Ultimate Chicken Horse or Forza on my Xbox.

If this intrigues you, you can follow me here:
