I am an enthusiastic web developer specialising in Perl with first-hand experience of building outstanding website platforms using open source technologies. I have been working on websites for over 13 years and in that time I have gained experience in all aspects of web development all the way from the front-end to the back. I currently work for Barclays Bank as a Perl specialist, developing a global procurement web application as part of a small five-person production team. Before that I gained two years of academic-based PHP LAMP development experience whilst completing my Mathematics with Computer Applications degree. I am passionate about the web, and love spending time creating websites and web-based systems using the latest technologies and practices. Recently, this has involved me looking into Agile development methodologies and attending regular monthly Extreme Programming meetups.
