Primarily a professional C developer, since 1991, on Unix, AIX and now Linux.
I first learned SQL in 1989 on SCO Xenix, and continued in 1992 using DEC Alphas, with Informix SQL. I have worked continually since then with SQL Server from 1999.
I first properly encountered the Win32 API in 1996, whilst working for CA, writing services for Windows NT.
I now do a lot of C++/CLI and VB.Net for various clients.
I also do some Network Admin/Support relating to PCI and ISO27000 work now.
- Heavy Manufacturing Engineering for Oil and Nuclear
- High Availability
And for fun:
- ARM Assembler on the Raspberry PI. An implementation of g.729A that works 20 times faster than pure C (I was a Commodore 64 freak, ARM assembler is just like extended 6502 assembler).
- Also I play around with electronics and Arduino style toys.
- A performing semi-professional violinist.
I'm a self employed freelancer with several continuing contracts. I'm always open to any new enquiries though.
