BEN WOODWARD

I’m an art-school dropout, one-time almost-pro skateboarder who taught himself to code. Currently I’m building Spoken with my Co-Founder and brother Joe.


Find me on Twitter or write me an email.

Spoken

Spoken is a language immersion app designed around the ideas from input hypothesis.

Code

I wrote my first line of code in school on a BBC Micro, later in Art school I bought an iMac G3 and learned how to create websites.

For most of my career I’ve been programming in Ruby, nowadays I’m focussed on Elixir and Svelte.js, and sometimes Swift.

I have a couple of repos on Github.

Skateboarding

From the age of 15 to 21 my only priority in life was to become a professional skateboarder.


Art

In my spare time I draw and paint. Sometimes I post my work to Instagram.
