Full project breakdown:

Simon

I am a passionate software developer with 10 years of industry experience and an MCPD since 2009. I specialise in .Net and related technologies and have a wide range of experience across the entire Microsoft ecosystem from .net 2.0 to the current platforms. I’ve been involved with projects for desktop (WinForms, WPF), web (Asp.net MVC and Azure), mobile (XNA, Silverlight and WinRT) and store apps (WinRT and UWP). SQL Server is typically the back end I choose.

In 2014-2015 I temporarily expanded my company to handle an increased commitment to several larger projects. During this period, I took on the additional roles of project lead and customer liaison in addition to my day to day development work.
