About

Thank you for visiting my blog. I have been a developer for many years starting professionally way back in 2004. Since then I have enjoyed many projects from winforms and windows services back on the early .net framework, to modern high throughput e-commerce website. Since 2015 I have been working in Azure mixed with C# and various JavaScript libraries.

Being dyslexic I have avoided public writing, however in 2020 I felt it was time to share my thought on a more regular basis and improve my writing in the process. If you find a spelling mistake please do reach out to me and let me know.

All the views in here are my own and are provided here so that hopefully these thoughts are as helpful to others as the internet has been to me. If you wish to contact me it is best to find me on twitter.

Activity

When time allows I actively work to encourage others into the industry and share my knowledge. I have been on Stack Overflow from the start as user 33 and contribute on GitHub.

In the past I have taken part in the JS13K games, MiniHack and in 2021 I also became a mentor for the Bit Project Serverless Camp.

During 2021 I have contributed to the Azure Spring Clean, C# Advent and the Festive Tech Calendar.
