Summary


Over the course of the past 15 years I have worked for several companies in various web developer roles. This has involved the maintenance and continued development of commercial web sites and online products. I currently work for a company called Perfect Channel, who are experts in creating intelligent, enterprise-level auction and trading technologies.

I have commercial experience working with technologies such as C#, .NET, Node.js, JavaScript and React. This has involved personally developing architecture and applications and also, in my more senior roles, guiding and assisting other developers. I currently work in a development environment that employs an agile approach using the Scrum framework. This includes test driven development, code reviews and continuous deployment.

My aim for the future is to expand on the knowledge base I currently have and continue to be involved in the architecture and design of web based applications from the ground up.
