Profesional Profile

Multi Skilled all round Software Professional.

I have strong experience with Javascript and iOS technologies, in particular but not limited to the MEAN stack and Swift. I am comfortable using front end technologies, however I am not a front end designer, my HTML and CSS skills are limited to modification of existing files, I could write a style sheet and HTML document from scratch but I would not be comfortable with this. I am however very comfortable modifying the DOM and creating Angular templates.

In iOS I am very capable with Swift, although I can also do Objective-C (This is a little rusty). I am familiar with Delegate design patterns, sub classing and many other features of the iOS platform.

I am keen on developing native mobile applications using iOS, however I am also very comfortable using Titanium by Appcelerator. Alrternative roles of interest would be MEAN stack, and in particular Node.js services.

I have experience with SQL but more recently I have been concentrating on NoSQL systems such as MongoDB.

In my previous life as a Test Manager I spoke out at several public events about the future of software engineering, with my thoughts leading toward multi skilled teams that can Gather requirements, build and test without the use of specific resources for each of these roles. Essentially removing the need for separate QA/BA resources.
