I am a professional software engineer and architect with over eighteen years commercial development experience with a strong focus on the design and development of web and mobile applications.

I have experience of architecting scalable, distributed, high volume web applications that are accessible from multiple devices due to their responsive web design, including architecting enterprise service-oriented solutions. I have also developed enterprise mobile applications using Xamarin and Telerik Platform.

I have extensive experience using .NET, ASP.NET, Windows and Web Services, WCF, SQL Server, LINQ and other Microsoft technologies. I am also familiar with HTML, Bootstrap, Javascript (inc. JQuery and Node.js), CSS, XML, JSON, Apache Cordova, KendoUI and many other web and mobile related technologies.

I am enthusiastic about Continuous Integration, Continuous Delivery and Application Life-cycle Management having configured such environments using CruiseControl.NET, TeamCity and Team Foundation Services. I enjoy working in Agile and Test Driven Development (TDD) environments.

Outside of work I have two beautiful daughters. I enjoy cycling, running and taking the dog for long walks. I love listening to music and am a fan of Rush and the Red Hot Chilli Peppers to name a few.

The development team

You are talking about several hundreds of people here, spread worldwide, in different companies, not just two developers sitting at a desk.

Yes, because you choose to ignore context and reality, and because you judge people from what you have heard in the news. I would agree with you if we were living in an idealistic world, but life is not black and white, and this case is far more complicated than just "OK, they decided to cheat at a large scale, this is unethical".

I find it awesome that you are defending ethics and integrity in a world that has never lacked them more, with tendency growing. IMHO, you should be less categorical in your positions to gain credibility : evangelism serves no purposes.
