Hi, I’m Luke Bennett (surprisingly) and I’m a tech leader hailing from Rugby in England which, even if you’ve never visited, you’ve probably heard of thanks to the sport that originated here.

Having spent a significant chunk of my career building web applications in ASP.NET and C#, over the last 5 years or so I’ve lived in the world of full stack JavaScript, with a healthy dose of microservices, containers and general DevOps goodness.

I oversee technology strategy for a UK multi-channel retailer, providing technical leadership to the engineering function and working closely with directors and senior stakeholders to define and execute our fast-paced technical roadmap (whilst also still getting my hands dirty from time to time); all of which serves the genuine purpose of literally changing people’s lives – which is what really makes me tick.

Although I enjoy using tech to make a real difference, it’s not the most important thing in my life. Of far more importance are:

1) My faith – as a Christadelphian my life is entirely shaped by my solid belief in the Bible as the word of God, and the wonderful hope it provides.

2) My wife and daughters, going home to whom is the best part of every working day.

3) Friends and family… and so I could continue, you get the drift!

As well as this blog you can follow me on Twitter, Github and probably other places too, if you really care enough to find me (I sometimes go by the handle benoire). Feel free to drop me an email – it’s my first name at lukebennett.com.
