Chris Parton

Wollongong, Australia

I am a software engineer working for a financial services startup called FinoComp. I have three year's industry experience as a Java developer.

I am proficient in SQL, including query optimisation. I am also experienced in web technologies, including Java Servlets, Vaadin, GWT, HTML, CSS, and JQuery.

I graduated from the University of Wollongong (UOW) with distinction and a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science (Dean's Scholar), with majors in Software Engineering and Enterprise systems. During two of my three years at UOW I was a PASS (Peer Assisted Study Sessions) leader for CSCI114 - Procedural Programming.

I enjoy programming electronics (particularly Arduinos), listening to music (my favourite band is Muse), reading (fantasy, action, non-fiction), and jogging (when I can be motivated to).
