Software Developer (Senior)
United Kingdom United Kingdom
I graduated with a First class honours degree in Computer Science from the University of Salford in June 2006. Shortly after I graduated, I started my first job as a web developer in a small consultancy company in the North-West. I have since moved to a larger organisation in Manchester, which is a bit closer to my home.

My development is 99% ASP.NET based with the remaining 1% being ad-hoc console applications or Windows services, and although I prefer to develop in C# (just because I think it is cleaner), VB is what is used in the team.

I am a senior developer self taught,
the main study is electronics and communication engineering

I am working as senior programmer in center for learning and innovation
www.cli.nsw.edu.au

I develop Software since 1995 using Delphi with Microsoft SQL Server

before 2000, I didn’t like Microsoft tools and did many projects using all database tools and other programming tools specially Borland C++ Builder, Delphi, Power Builder
And I loved Oracle database for its stability until I was certified as Master in Database Administration from Oracle University.

I tried to work in web programming but I felt that Java is hard and slow in programming, specially I love productivity.

I began worked with .Net since 2001 , and at the same time Microsoft SQL Server 7 was very stable so I switched all my way to Microsoft Tech.
I really respect .Net Platform especially in web applications

I love database Applications too much
And built library with PowerBuilder it was very useful for me and other developers

I have a wide experience due to my work in different companies
But the best experience I like in wireless applications, and web applications.
The best Application I did in my life is Novartis Marketing System 1999 it takes 8 months developing with PowerBuilder and Borland C++, SQL Server
Performance was the key challenge in this Application.
The other 2 applications that I loved Multilingual Project in Scada company in Italy 2000 and SDP Mobile media content platform server for ChinaUnicom 2004
I hope that you enjoy any Article I post.
God bless you.
