About Me

Hi I’m Ian, I’m a self taught developer and I write this blog.

Since 2000 I have been building and maintaining applications in a variety of industries ranging from Banking and Finance to Social Care and Utilities.

I am interested in the entire spectrum of software development especially web development, databases, legacy code, instrumentation, debugging and security.

I love attending conferences, listening to Podcasts and enjoy reading good technology books. I owe much of my success to discovering the first edition of Code Complete early in my career.

In my spare time I help run a local Code Club which introduces primary school age children to programming. When offline I can found exploring and photographing battlefields of World War II.
