I jointly own a software engineering company that provides bespoke software to the UK manufacturing industry and I do a lot of freelance work for small (solo-preneurs) to medium sized businesses.
From the moment I came across my first opportunity of accessing a computer system, I was hooked - and that was the Commodore PET back in 1978. I built a NASCOM 1 from a kit about a year later and I loved writing in Z80 assembler.
Over the years I have designed software and written code in ADA, Pascal, C, C++, Java, VB.Net and now C#. I was so pleased with the way Microsoft has developed the .Net Framework and Visual Studio, that I now focus my development around this fantastic environment.
I love producing applications that can be seen to provide great benefit to its owners and/or its users. With software I can create something out of nothing more than an idea and that's rewarding!
As a Freelance Software Engineer, I have provided professional services to the Telecomms indiustry (and Banking industry a little) for over 20 years. I have developed and supported software in both the UNIX Solaris and Microsoft Windows environments, together with Oracle, MySQL and MS SQL Server 2000 database technologies.
My main focus is on applications in C#.Net 2.0 and website development in ASP.Net 2.0 into both MS SQL and MySQL databases. I also do quite a lot of work on websites in PHP (with MySQL) as this essential for many many cients and their environments, plus most open source projects are written in PHP.
I have worked on many fixed price projects for smaller firms as well as on long term contract for big blue chip companies as a member of consultancy teams.
I am based in Cambridge and I generally provide services to clients in the Midlands and Sout East England.
