I have 20 years of experience in software architecture and development; I am passionate about extending and sharing my knowledge and leading technical teams and I also have strong computer security, systems integration and optimisation training and experience.
Most of my career has been spent in the finance sector, and asset management in particular, which built on the knowledge I gained doing a commerce degree.
Specialties: My main technical experience is in .NET and SQL server architecture, design and development, system integration and system optimisation. Recently I have broadened my interests, deploying Ubuntu VMs on Azure to run websites and developing REST API with Java and Scala on the JVM, primarily to integrate with Google and Payment systems.
I am currently building REST APIs in .NET Core and Java on Ubuntu, using Docker for deployment. In my "spare time" I am integrating Java/Dropbox Web APIs with temperature monitoring software I am running on Raspberry Pi's to monitor fridge temperatures at clinics.
