Technical Lead Plymouth University

Engineering career - originally precision mechanical, then electronic, then computer, then telecommuncations, then marketing, then software and everything else involved in specifying, designing, developing and implementing small systems using hardware, firmware and software.

Expertise in various tools and languages over the years as fashions and requirements shifted. Moved from screwdrivers and soldering irons into 8080 and 6502 machine code and thence to many high level languages.

Currently mostly in a .NET standalone windows and web application environment with SQL server but also using LAMP environment when appropriate.

Retiring soon, but always open for interesting projects that float my old wooden sailing boat.

Love and passion for low level, high performance code! The lower the better! I disassemble everything!
I learnt x86 Assembler in the 90's, after reading the `Zen of Assembly Language` and `Graphics Programmers Black Book` by Michael Abrash.
I also love C & C++, but I'm anti-Modern C++!
(It's hard to clarify what I mean by `anti-Modern C++`! Because I love a lot of things added to C++11! Like nullptr, auto and a few other things)
I hate the abominations called `futures`/`promises`, STL containers, shared_ptr etc.
I've been inspired by the works of John Carmack, Mark J. Kilgard, Michael Abrash, Bob Jenkins and especially Agner Fog!
