About: Richard Bovell

Richard Bovell is a front-end engineer and UI designer. While Richard has a computer science degree, everything he has learned about modern web application development and mobile app development is self-taught and is attributed to great programming books and free online programming resources—blogs, tutorials, open source libraries and frameworks, and the like.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
