Find Rob Styles Online

These are the most common places to find me online
Blog logo


My first blog post was back in 1999, and I kept posting until 2012 when I let the blog die. I reinstated it in 2021. It's a low frequency blog of technical thoughts.

Twitter logo


I've been on Twitter since February 2007. In recent years it's turned into a bit of a dumpster fire, full of abuse, argument, and misinformation. I use it mostly to follow interesting people in tech.

Mastodon logo

Mastodon / Fediverse

I'm increasingly using Mastodon, a federated social media platform, in preference to Twitter. Come find me there.

GitLab logo


This site is hosted on GitLab, using Eleventy with GitLab CI/CD and Pages. I've only recently started using GitLab and am impressed. I'd recommend taking a look if you haven't already.

GitHub logo


Most of my code is hosted on GitHub, much of it is open-source, but a lot of it is private.

Exercism logo


Exercism is a great tool for programming language learning. I mentor on the javascript track.

Strava logo


I started running in May 2018, and joined a local running club in May 2019. I run regularly. Prior to 2018 I used to commute by bike fairly regularly. It's all on strava.

Instagram logo


Mostly travel photos from various trips at different times, intermixed with shots from in and around Birmingham. Selfies are rare.

Slack logo


You probably use slack at your workplace. If you'd like to chat on slack you can find me in the BrumTech community (this links to a self-invite form).

WhatsApp logo


If you're a recruiter, and I don't already know you, please do not use this WhatsApp link.

GMail logo


Of course, you can always email me.

LinkedIn logo


You can find me on LinkedIn, but I don't check in there very often. The messages in my inbox are mostly spam, so it's likely I'll miss messages from you there. You'll have better luck DMing me on Twitter.
