Full Biography

Experts Exchange... Clothing me since 2003

Main Focus:
I'm more of a technical consultant these days. My area of expertise is Sage CRM. This involves everything from getting the specification written, through to installation, configuration, extending and developing, and as far as maintenance and support. The languages I tend to use are Javascript, SQL and C#. I've been working with Sage CRM as a developer since 2005. Worked on it since v5.7 and prior to that in I dabbled with it in the very early days when it was eWare.

C#: More a Windows programmer than a web programmer. Although I focus on C# I come from a background of VB.NET and VB.

C#: I work primarily in C#. I started out with VB.NET as my first .NET language although I began things commercially with VB.

SQL: I've been programming SQL server, specifically T-SQL, since the days of SQL 6.5 and work very heavily in SQL on a daily basis.

History:
SQL programmer
Windows programmer
Javascript programmer
VB programmer
ASP programmer
General web development knowledge including HTML. Not so hot with CSS but then I'm a coder not a designer
Some Act! and Goldmine experience although I don't like to talk about it!
Some Dynamics development knowledge
Knowledge of Sage 200 and 300 ERP.

I've done embedded programming work on various microcontroller boards.

Other experience/stuff:
Perl
Regex
PHP
General database knowledge
Linux (mainly Debian and Raspbian)
Raspberry Pi
Computer Hardware, although not so much these days as I don't have time to dabble with it
Crystal Reports
SSRS
Onyx CRM
Java
Plenty of Windows experience picked up along the way from Windows 2.0 to the latest versions and I worked and played with DOS a lot before making the jump to Windows. Worked with DOS from 3.0 right through to the latest incarnation bundled with Windows ME.
Worked with DR-DOS 5.0 and 6.0

I've been working in the IT industry commercially since 1998 but I've been coding in various languages since about 1985 and I've seen plenty of progression and change over the years. In fact I've been messing around with computers since I got my first ZX Spectrum back in the mid 80's and decided I wanted to know how games were made so I discovered BASIC and then took some tentative (short lived) steps into assembler!

I've worked in telecoms, the financial industry more specifically micro payment sites, the book publishing industry, and oddly the poultry industry, and now I'm in the CRM industry as a senior technical consultant.

I do work full time but I do engage in external project work where it doesn't interfere or conflict with my day job.

I also fix computers, rebuild them, etc.
