Tell me more about yourself
I have been writing software since 2004, starting with PHP as a hobby. When undertaking my bachelors degree in Computer Science, my focus was on data structures, algorithms and telematics.
My industry experience focuses on embedded software engineering roles. My responsibilities over the years have included firmware development, supporting hardware/RF engineers, automated test equipment (ATE) and industrial systems. My aim is to be a full stack developer and deliver a solution rather than concentrating on a particular technology.
My final year project for university was a prototype wearable device for care home patients with dementia. It used low power radio and a PIC microcontroller to alert carers when a patient leaves the proximity of their home. The system was written in a mixture of C (firmware) and C# (base station) and was featured in the university technology degree show.
I am currently employed by an organisation which operates in the remote condition monitoring space, as Lead Engineer for Software.
Bare-metal firmware development
Backend systems and database design

I believe in using the right programming language for the job.
