Previously Senior Software Developer at Crowdsurge in London, currently at fanatix.

Particular interest in systems and software design for HA environments. Always up for a challenge and enjoy learning new stuff. Looking for work which has a solid basis in design and I always seem to be involved in moving things forward. I enjoy leading and working within a team.

Currently actively interested in the workings of SOA. New technologies (for me) Neo4j, Nodejs, Python, GoLang, RabbitMQ, 0MQ. AWS.

Recent technologies: Sandboxing with Vagrant, chef. Cluster architecture (migrated from single server arch. into cluster infrastructure). Nginx/php-fpm in a cluster.

Spent time at Crowdsurge learning Go from the perspective of a PHP developer.

Experienced in OO PHP, Zend Framework development. Javascript 'pure' and using jQuery, also Nodejs, and some Angularjs. Relational Db: SQL Server, mySql. NoSql using CouchDB and MongoDb, and Lucene.

Agile/Scrum approach. SCM: Git, github, bitbucket, subversion.

Big fan of devops tools such as: etcd, redis, elasticsearch, newrelic and statsd.

Previous experience includes system admin for a disability charity in West London and Web developer at Mediatel Group Ltd in London.
