Richard Taylor

Experienced C/C++/C#/VB/.NET developer.


Pensnett, United Kingdom


I started learning to program in BASIC when I was 11. Since then I've climbed the landscape of programming languages and even come to be the creator of one. I specialize in C/C++ and .NET languages, with about 10 years of C++ experience and 7 years of .NET experience, including C# and Visual Basic .NET. During this period, I've learned many other languages and technologies, including Python, JavaScript, HTML 5, CSS 3, PHP. I hold a first-class Bachelor of Science Degree in Computer Science from Birmingham University, and have a strong passion for the subject. (The score for my final project was ... more76%, and the score for the C/C++ module was 79%.) If you're considering a low-level project involving operating systems, security or game design, please contact me. less

    Ricky is a good developer. Had some things come up on his end so we were never able to finish the project. That said, I would hire him again. He does know his stuff!
