Area Covered: West Midlands, UK (by remote)
Work Experience Summary: Primarily a technical specialist in c# (.net 1.1/2.0/3.0/3.5 framework) and Sql Server 2005/08, I have nine years experience of developing, designing and analysis web applications, services and databases. The majority of my project work to date has been predominantly using .net 2.0/3.0/3.5. I have recently been working on projects using Silverlight 3 and ASP.Net MVC / NHibernate / IOC.
Although I have predominantly worked in permanent positions for most of my career to date, I have taken on additional freelance contracts to help keep my skill base current, and pay off improvements to my house!! I have several on going projects relating to contemporary jewellery and walking groups. These sites can be visited at http://www.pogojewellery.com and http://www.letsgoforastroll.org. I also manage hosting for a variety of websites.
In addition to my technical abilities, I have also managed small teams of developers, mentored several people, and done a spot of account management as well!
My goal as always is to find challenging roles within my own company and other opportunites that makes a difference to peoples lives and that allows me to fulfill and develop my skills and understanding. The social benefit aspect of the work I do is also very important to me.
From a technical perspective I wish to pursue updating my microsoft certifications to become a MCTS. I believe its highly important to collaborate with other developers to learn new ideas and technologies.
Education Summary: I have a series of microsoft certifications related to developing web applications using c#. I am currently taking exams for the MCTS qualification. I regularly attend regional .net user group seminars.
I can provide a list of training courses etc if required.
I am university educated with a 2:1 degree in MPhys (BSc and MSc) Astrophysics from University of Leicester and spent a few years doing a doctorate in Atmospheric Physics at Imperial College in London (submitted but never viva-ed!)
