Software Dev/Evangelist kind of person

United Kingdom, London

Permanent

Summary

I'm an full time Developer in London for Ve Interactive. My job is different from one week to the next.
These days, I'm travelling around to the different development centres we have around the world to sort out high impact development issues, migrations, and general mentoring. In my history, I've worked on corporate applications in C#, SQL, the usual Front End things, Azure and many many things in between.

My stream on the other hand; I stream things from DevOps to Assembly, learning the basics of a new language to building projects to soapbox'ing about recent tech news.

I've found streaming on LiveEdu.tv to be a great tool when doing anything development related. There's always, either, someone much smarter than you willing to help you when you're stuck, or people fascinated at what you're doing and are taking in every word you're saying. It's a fantastic community that I'm very proud to be a part of.

Employment History

  • Software Developer | Ve Interactive

    July 2013 - Present

    My job is different from one week to the next. When I joined my company, I spent a year in Tech Support before joining Development. I spent a week actually coding before getting caught up in Scrum Master'ing, Team Leading, general management stuff. I'm now a very good talker, come Software Dev. I negotiate with developers for what business wants. If that fails, I usually end up getting together a team and doing it myself. I've build up a lot of teams.
