Hi, thanks for visiting!

My name's Sam Kelleher, and I am a Senior Full-Stack Web Developer / Software Architect based in London. This website mostly contains a sample of work from my portfolio, tips, and best practicies for building web applications, and reviews + photos of food and hotels in London.

Beta releases should always be private

Consumers install beta quality test software, normally intended for developers, and then have a poor first-impression, and often get stuck with technical issues, then blame the company for releasing ‘bad’ software - regardless of what the final product is like.

Considering the warnings and notices given during the download process I find it strange that many users get so angry and surprised when the beta software is crashy and unreliable.
