    IT specialist | Full Stack Javascript | nodejs | backbone | mongo

    United Kingdom - Last active: 07/18/2013 - Tests: 1 - Portfolio: 2

    "Whatever the job takes" would be a good motto I guess. Hardware, software, systems design, content creation, even the odd bit of graphics and making the coffee when needed. Have to admit I'm no good at graphics design - simple stuff, maybe, but it's not my cup of tea. Recent years have seen projects in Actionscript and Flex then the Ruby and Rails stack with the last 18 months being dedicated to Full Stack Javascript. Nodejs, nosql, redis, server builds, cloud deployment, websockets, backbone, coffeescript, dustjs, AMD, CSS3, bootstrap, stylus — you know, the usual suspects. A fair number of projects have also included the design and implementation of fully distributed solutions based around 0MQ / ZeroMQ. Add to that lot my 30+ years providing IT solutions to a wide variety of clients from governments to small business and well, you get the idea.
