Specialises In

I have been working in the Software Engineering field for over 20 years. I’ve undertaken a variety of roles within the software industry, including: project management (of software development projects, training course development, consultancy studies, etc.); analysis of requirements; technical architecture, software design and development, teaching and writing.


I have worked for a variety of companies, both large and small, including: The Instruction Set, Hoskyns, Cap Gemini, Ratio and PTS. Industries I’ve worked in include: financial trading (bonds, shares), airlines, government secure communications, CAD for VLSI.


Mostly I’ve been involved in consultancy – that is – I’m usually working for an end client. My favourite role is as technical project manager. I also like architecture and business analysis roles. See my full CVfor more details. I’ve programmed in C++,  C  , Java, Javascript, Ruby, Python, and Lisp – plus others…


I write for a number of industry publications and journals (Enterprise Architect, Application Development Advisor, C++ report, Exe magazine, etc.) and was formerly editor of Threads – an open system’s related technical journal. I am currently (spare time job) editor of ObjectiveView, a technical journal focusing on software development (back copies can be obtained from the Objective View home page). I present fairly regularly at many software engineering conferences (TOOLS, OOIS, Component Computing, Enterprise Architecture, etc.)
