About

Hi there! I’m Coby Chapple. I work on product at GitHub, a highly distributed company that is rapidly changing the way the world builds software. I write and speak about working remotely, building products, and technology in general.

Outside of my work I enjoy photography, mountain biking, and generally being active. In various past lives I’ve been a hip-hop teacher, competitive breakdancer, gold-medal barbershop singer, and 11 time national modern jive champion. I have a fairly fierce competitive streak.

I’m originally from New Zealand, and also lived in Australia for over a decade too, before moving to the UK in 2012. I mostly work from my home Perthshire, Scotland. It’s beautiful here. You should visit.

Got a question? I’d love to hear from you. Just send me an email.
