Carl van Tonder


"Supervacuo" is Carl van Tonder, Manchester/New York-based developer, writer and campaigner.

Web Development

Currently, I'm working as a website and application programmer at the Anthesis Group (formerly Best Foot Forward).

I have experience with creating websites (Wordpress, Drupal), web application development (PHP, Python/Django), systems administration (Windows Server 2003 to 2008 R2 and GNU/Linux), remote or on-site support (Windows XP to 7, GNU/Linux and Mac) and general IT strategy advice.

I am currently available for paid work; e-mail or call me on +44 (0) 1865 52 2581 (absolutely no agencies, thank you).

I sometimes provide systems administration support, development time or IT purchasing advice pro bono. If you represent a campaigning group that is not-for-profit, radical, community-focussed and has a low budget, I may be able to help — please get in touch.


I'm working on several bits of open-source desktop, website and mobile software in between other things: find me on GitHub or BitBucket for signs of life


I'm on Twitter and, and I'm reachable via e-mail at
