I'm a developer based in Surrey. I make a living doing all-and-sundry for a financial services firm, from LOB applications to server monitoring/alerting systems and even the odd genetic algorithm.
A fair share of my time is spent doing r&d for the team on new technologies, trying out new ideas for better ways to get things done and optimizing existing code and processes.
Day-to-day I work with C# (.NET 4), T-SQL and VBA, although more often using Python and SQLite for mocking up / testing out new ideas.
Food. Eating in great restaurants, cooking great meals to share with friends, everything gastronomic makes me happy. And I've got a worryingly huge collection of cookery books taking over my lounge to prove it!
Photography. I love my 40D and would surely have it with me more often were the beautiful British weather a little less wet.
And, of course coding. Having spent a lot of time around C-based languages (C, C++, C#, Obj-C), I enjoy playing with Python and am hoping to get to grips with functional languages next. I've been playing with web development for a little while now also, learning PHP and I plan to get to grips with Django next. I'm currently working the the Project Euler problems in whichever language I'm trying to get to grips with at the moment!
