My name is Jon Smith and I am a software architect and programmer. I work mainly on designing and building web-based business applications that have a strong database content. I am based in the UK and I am available for short-term contract work. Skills

I design and develop web/mobile applications using Microsoft technologies on the server and various JavaScript/Html libraries at the front end. I have strong technical skills around Microsoft’s database access technology, Entity Framework, and equally strong skills on building the web front end using ASP.NET MVC and JavaScript libraries.

I have developed an open source library called GenericServices, which is .NET class library that helps build a service layer, i.e. a layer that acts as a facard/adapter between your database in the Data Layer and your User Interface or HTTP service in your Presentation Layer. I have also written a number of articles on this and other .NET/JavaScript these technologies, both on my own blog site but also on the Simple-Talk technical blog site.

I have project management and senior management skills built up over many year. These mean I can work well with clients and developers alike. You can find out more about my history on LinkedIn or in My History on this site.
