After years in the industry I recently started Deva Software Limited, a small independent software consultancy based in Chester, UK with the aim of developing a range of products and offering software development services through both project and contract work.
The core skills I offer here are web based application development, database design and development, mobile application development, systems integration and other related consulting services.
I am solution focused rather than focused on specific technologies however have extensive experience and expertise in the following areas: Core Java and Java EE, Spring framework across all application layers, Java web application development across many popular frameworks, Java Persistence API (JPA) and Hibernate, Java Web Services development across many popular frameworks, Relational database SQL development on most relational databases plus Oracle PL/SQL and NoSQL technologies including CouchDB.
With prior experience gained years ago developing safety critical industrial process control systems and conducting CHAZOP studies as well as a keen interest in best practices and software design I deliver high standards of quality in code and furthermore bring high standards of professionalism to any project.

Summary: Recent experience at my new company has been to architect and develop a complete mobile and web enterprise solution for a global restaurant chain using a range of technologies across a project length of approximately nine months.
The ability to deliver complex solutions has been learned through many years of prior experience as a developer at a leading enterprise mobile solutions provider delivering mobile working solutions to private and public sector organisations ranging in size from small organisations to global blue chips. During this time I led development teams, engaged in customer consultations and requirements gathering, designed and implemented key aspects of the product line at the mobile, web and database levels and designed and implemented systems integration to customers existing systems such as CRM and appointments systems.
Prior to this I built upon a career in instrumentation and control through developing safety critical industrial process control software on PLC's and in house development of basic office productivity enhancements such as Access databases and Excel. The rigours of developing safety critical industrial process control systems and conducting CHAZOP studies lends itself well to creating good quality software code.
