👋 I'm Nic

Nicolas Alpi, Ruby on Rails developer in Bristol, CTO, Entrepreneur.

Nic Alpi face round

I’m a CTO, Ruby on Rails developer and entrepreneur based in Bristol, UK I’ve got more than 20 years of experience building software for early-stage startups, scale-ups up and enterprise organisations.

In 2011, I co-founded a software consultancy called CookiesHQ. For 10 years I grew the company alongside Nat, my wife to a 15+ people operation and 7 figures revenue.

In 2021, we got acquired and I’m now enjoying building the future of age tech at Amba.

Alongside my role at Amba, I’m also a CTO in residence in SetSquared Bristol as well as an advisor to various small agencies and consultancies looking to grow their business.

Why does this website exist?

For 10 years, I’ve been concentrating on starting and growing a business. While this was an extremely rewarding experience, I might have (sometimes) lost myself along the way. So this website is my way of reclaiming my personal side on the web.

I like to write, teach and podcast, therefore I expect this space to be filled with content around entrepreneurship, agency building as well as my first passion, Ruby on Rails and web development in general.
