Having spent the larger part of my career employed in large corporations with a huge amount of specialised custom applications, I’ve gotten to know all parts of the software lifecycle.
In this environment, where things are often rushed due to cost, I’ve learnt that the most successful software is always well crafted from the bottom and up, and with a well-planned user interface. If your users are frustrated with their tools, that will cost you money. I’ve also learnt the value of writing understandable and maintainable code.
Nowadays I specialise in intranet solutions and SharePoint. Spending my time trying to get this aircraft carrier to manoeuvre like a jet ski.
In my spare time I love to spend time on the golf course or out on the seas. However, you’ll most likely find me passed out on the sofa after chasing two small kids around all day.
