Hello, My Name is Anthony Galvin – Call me Ant
I live in Co. Cork, Ireland and spend my days building stuff that involves large amounts of data and the web. These days, that data is mostly related to Cattle and Sheep genetics. My main interest is in what happens when Big Data meets normal sized people – The UX of data.
Facts about me
- 1 wife and 1 child. Plenty.
- Always will be a Kerryman.
- I ran a marathon before any of my friends had their mid-life crisis. (So I finished first!).
- Second film I ever saw at the cinema was Jaws, at the age of 4 – Gave me nightmares for years, but its still my favourite film.
- One of my proudest achievements is a logging system I built in a day in 2002 and its still in use handling millions of transactions every week. (Sad?)
- That’s what I like to do, build things that people actually find useful.
