I am a father, husband and geek.
I have always enjoyed coding. My interested started when my uncle bought me a ZX Spectrum 48k when I was only 11! I’m giving my age away there 😉.
From Oct 2015, I was an admin on the Real Racing 3 Wiki. This included updating the site, using HTML, Wiki mark-up and designing templates. This allowed editors to enter high-quality data and display it in a consistent layout. I introduced variables, which allowed tables to be automatically totalled and colour highlighting of relevant data. I retired as an Admin Jan 2019, to concentrate on becoming a programmer.
My effort has paid off! In July 2020, I started as a full time software developer at Health Education and Improvement Wales (HEIW), I have added over 800 pages to our website. I have created several sites using Silverstripe CMS. After one of the developers left I took ownership of several legacy sites, build with in house PHP frameworks. I am currently building an event booking and planning app using Laravel and the TALL stack.
I 💖 being a software developer!
