About My Dev Background

I've been developing for over 20 years, well, if you count the old ZX Spectrum coding (when I say coding, I mean copying hundreds of lines from the old computing magazines) then I've been developing for about 28 years!

My Dad got me into Windows development when he rocked up with a copy of Delphi, from Borland as they were then. I got to grips with that very quickly before moving onto Visual Basic. I developed in VB for a couple of years before I moved into C#.NET; I've been developing with C# for over 10 years now and it's become my job, and my hobby!

What's Important To Me

Speed

Using the latest dev tools, years of experience and my vast collection of dev libraries, I can develop quickly and deliver a reliable and maintainable codebase!

Quality

Code quality is very important! If you don't know what your own code is doing in 6 months time, you've failed yourself, and you've created a headache for others!

Expertise

With over 20 years of dev experience and being a C# .NET hero (my own rating!), I've a sound knowledge of lots and lots of technologies and their implementation.

Security

There are so many people willing to smash your systems for data - data is valuable - so building security in from the start is not only vital, but default in my solutions.

Reliability

For a solution to be completely reliable, it needs more than just a sound codebase. Infrastructure, deployment, patching... all considerations in any solution.

Price

Dev work can be expensive, usually due to poor planning! Technical Debt is costly. Plan well, deliver on time, keep deployments up to date and this will keep the cost down!
