Phil Booth

Progressive working class software developer

Hello and welcome to my vanity website!

This is where I boast about all the cool stuff I've been doing. If you're interested in reading about that then congratulations, you've come to the right place! 😄

About me

I'm a software engineer on the Application Services team at Mozilla, predominantly working on Firefox Accounts (FxA).

FxA is the authentication system used by Firefox Sync, Pocket, Lockbox and a bunch of other Mozilla services. The codebase is a mix of Node.js, Rust and Python. Like everything I work on, it's 100% open-source and you can find the code on GitHub.

Before working at Mozilla I was a developer at Nature. During my time there I mostly focused on web performance.

In my spare time I like to hack on side-projects and open-source stuff. If you want to find out more about those, go here or check out my GitLab profile.

Away from programming I'm into records and beer. I also like mucking about with data, so sporadically I curate scores for the records I've been playing or beers I've been drinking, and generate SVG charts off the back of them.

What have I been up to lately?
