I’m Donnacha Mac Gloinn, a WordPress, Laravel and online bookings expert based in Edinburgh, UK, for the past decade but now living in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
I was introduced to the Internet, before the Web even existed, in the computer labs of Trinity College Dublin and worked my way through university as a server admin for Ireland’s first Internet Service Provider.
Upon graduating, I spent three years as the network administrator for Ireland’s largest legal services firm before moving to Amsterdam in 2000 and creating Europe’s first vacation rentals website.
I have created sites with WordPress since 2005 and watched it mature into the Internet’s most flexible and democratizing platform. I have been using Jomres, the online booking system, since 2008 and consider it to currently be the most interesting Open Source Software project.
