I have started work in the IT Office System areas of computing as a maintenance programmer programming in Fortan and Assembler and then worked at all levels through developer, team leader, project manager, test manger and design authority. I then left permanent employment, to work for a number of Blue Chip companies as a contractor in a variety of roles ranging from Year 2000 Test Management and Record Keeping for UBS through to Change and Release Management for Sonys Playstation Website. At all times I retained my initial love of programming taking the opportunity to use those skills to manage the deployment of software changes and to assist in the management and checking of data. During my contracting period I built tools for recoding errors found by the test team; checking that a full set of multilingual test and images had been sent to the PlayStation website; maintaining the test result library; archiving of test results and tools for the saving and restore of test environments for Year 200 testing. These tools were mainly built using Access Excel and with some involvement in Shell Scripting.
I then decided to take semi-retirement and have gone back to indulging myself by programming - partly to enjoyable occupy my time and partly to fund my other hobby of traveling the world!
My career has involved working in a number office systems from early Search Engines, Word Processing Systems and Imaging systems through to working for 5 years at Sony’s Playstation European websites.
Apart from Sony Playstation, I have also worked for ICL/Fujitsui, Racal Electronics, Global Crossing, UBS, Mitsui Sumitomo and the Bank of Ireland.
