Hire Me

Would you like me to work on your software project? I can also provide training and technical writing services. I take on contract work when I'm available. Contact me via email for more information.

I have countless years of experience working with C# and .NET (I wrote a book on .NET Core), both on the desktop / back-end and web based (using ASP.NET MVC, HTML, CSS, SQL and JavaScript). I specialise in Continuous Integration (CI) and delivery using tools such as TFS, VSTS, TeamCity and Octopus Deploy, and techniques such as Test Driven Development (TDD). I also do a bit of Python and Ruby, and am pretty good with hardware / electronics too.

I have plenty of practice using cloud infrastructure (both on AWS and Azure). You may like my three-part series on AWS vs Azure, vendor lock-in and pricing confusion. I use techniques such as blue-green deployment / staging slots and feature switching.

I've built distributed systems using Message Queuing (MQ) and microservice architectures with software such as RabbitMQ. I also know a thing or two about computer security and financial markets.

I typically use an agile methodology (normally with Scrumban - combining Scrum and Kanban). I not only do development but also solution architecture design, business analysis, consulting, project management, DevOps and DBA roles.

A full CV and rates can be provided on request. I also have a VAT registered UK limited company that I can bill you through.

I'm mostly after contract work that can be done remotely, not normal full-time employment. Although I'm available for on-site visits and will consider office based work depending on the location (London, UK).

No recruiters please. If you are sending a job then please be upfront with what it pays and save everyone time. You can read more about my open hiring philosophy here.
