Hello Everyone,

I didn't study programming at academic levels, but rather learned it by myself at home.
From time to time i will try to post some code that's rarely being used and it does prove useful.

Please anytime if you need help, don't hesitate to contact me. I'll be glad to help you out!

Best Regards

My first computer was a Commodore Pet 2001 and I learned BASIC on it. In college I learned and played with Fortran, Colol, PL/1, ASM, JCL and such. I started working with computers in the early 80s programming Z80, 8088 machine code and then BASIC, Turbo Pascal, Modula-2, 6800 machine code, 6809 machine code and 6502 machine code. By the late 80's I was doing a lot of Borland Pascal and communications/modem programming and making EDI translators and using BTrieve databases. I worked up to C and then Delphi when it came out. By the mid 90's I was a web developer on Netscape servers and then Microsoft NT. I then began to use Classic ASP and started to learn SQL Server and Access. Now I am an IT Manager, but on the side do web development (mostly retail sites and shopping carts) and I sell cat toys online.

I am a self-taught programmer originating from the Isle of Wight. I have approximately 3 years commercial experience in developing LOB applications for a wide range of customers (local companies to FTSE 100). During this time, I have honed my development skills across a wide range of platforms and frameworks including C#, VB.net, T-SQL, Web Services and Android programming.

I am currently training towards my MCSA SQL Server 2012 qualification alongside my degree in Computing from Bournemouth University (Graduating 2013). During my time at Bournemouth University, I have built an extensive knowledge in core networking protocols and architecture including TCP, IP (v4 & v6), DNS, ARP, HTTP, EMAIL (SMTP, POP3 and IMAP), WiMAX (802.16) and WiFi (802.11).

I like to help fellow developers through the StackExchange network, accumulating approximately 3000 reputation across the various sites. I also like to maintain a technology blog to help others learn.
