Hi, 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 lucky enough to be introduced to the Internet in the computer labs of Trinity College Dublin before the Web even existed 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 one of the first vacation rentals websites.

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.
