I am a Software Engineer, living in Edinburgh with my Girlfiend and our Pug called Miguel. I am originally from Donegal in Ireland and grew up on one of the most beautiful and rugged parts of the Wild Atlantic Way.


Hard-Coded.com is my home on the web. I post articles on a wide range of programming topics, and also like to share my experiments here.

If you like my work then please give it a star on github. You can see all my latest projects at the following url https://github.com/BrianDGLS.

Code Golf Scotland

As well as blogging and experimenting with web technologies, I also run a code golf challenge.

Code Golf Scotland is aimed predominantly at developers living and working in Scotland. Everyone is welcome to take part, so make sure to follow us on twitter @CodeGolfScot.
