I left Nottingham University in 2000 with an MSci in Mathematical Physics proudly in my grasp... but not a clue what I wanted to do with it!
Somewhere along the way however, I managed to swap Quantum Mechanics and General Relativity for RecordSets and Arrays, and took on some freelance VB development work. I soon realised I'd found my vocation, and promptly found an IT post in Nottingham, where I began developing Access databases (using VBA) for local government offices.
At some point I moved from Access to SQL Server, and before long, got my grubby palms on a copy of Visual Studio .NET. A very important milestone in my development career I think! Armed with my new found .NET knowledge, and with four years IT experience under my belt, I found my second job as Project Manager/IT Systems Developer, which brings us nicely up to date. I now work almost exclusively in .NET, writing mainly C# Windows applications and the odd web service, although I’m working on my ASP.NET too: the future of software development.
