Hi, I'm Andrew, a Web Developer and aspiring Product/Project Manager. I completed my MSc in Web Development in 2010 and have a First Class BSc in Internet Computing with Mathematics.
For the first 4 years of my career, I developed websites for a variety of clients as a sole trader. In early 2011, I also joined a team working on a playlist creation website called SoundtrackToYour which became the main project I was working on at the time.
In 2014 I joined the software development team at ITN in London where I have worked on a number of projects including:
- the development of a Generation Y news website;
- the maintenance and feature development of their news archive website ITN Source;
- development a new ingest service for video clips;
- updated and maintained workflows;
- taken over the development of a new internal service for searching, downloading and editing videos;
- and many other updates to smaller projects.
In 2015, I joined a team of people to help form a new charity to support the education of underprivileged children in Uganda. I took on the task of building/managing the charity's website as well as building the branding and designing various promotional material. I have also run a couple of successful events for the charity and hope to do more in the future.
I have experience writing C# code mainly for websites with an MVC architecture, but also in maintaining/developing further a couple of websites built on an old version of Umbraco. I also have some experience working with workflows to process large numbers of video ingests. I enjoy building the front end of websites and working with CMS and eCommerce systems (mainly Drupal). I have also in the past built websites from scratch with PHP. I work hard to produce websites the correct way, to ensure that they will be easy to use, future proofed, accessible and mobile friendly. I always strive to produce the most efficient and clean solution possible.
I'm always looking to put my skills to good use in new ways: through different technologies, different industries and different experiences.
