Dillon Fearns (Dilski)


I am a Web Developer for Edinburgh Software Limited. I graduated from Heriot-Watt University with a BSc in Computer Science in 2018. I’m interested in the web, functional programming and making things.

My favourite languages are SML-NJ, ReasonML, Javascript (ES6) and SQL. Java, Python and PHP are some more languages that I am proficient in.

This site is purposely minimal. It started as a joke with friends, but I've grown to love the bare aesthetic.

Projects

Here is a list of some of my projects. If a link is broken, the repo is probably private (for some reason or another). Get in contact with me if you would like to have a look around, I’d love to talk to you about it!


Coffee

I’m very much into coffee, some might say that it’s my “thing”. I competed in the Scottish Aeropress Championships 2017, worked in a coffee shop for a while, and have purchased over 6kg of whole coffee beans since April 2017 (when I started counting). My preferred brewing method is in a v60, but I also have 2 Aeropresses, a classic Bialetti, a few french presses, 2 automatic drip machines, a Gaggia Classic espresso machine, a beta MBK aergrind and a baratza encore burr grinder. The coffee shops that are certainly worth your time can be found on my map here (the golden ones are my top 3).
