Programming Language? Check. Platform? Check. Design language? Check. Speed? Uhh…

I’m an Australian (so you won’t understand me) SDET (so you’ll fall asleep) working on performance (I’ll speak way too fast) for the WP Developer Platform. I get way too excited about my job, so you probably don’t want sit in the front row (I’m also kind of corny, in case you couldn’t tell).
