About me

My name is Ian,

I am an Agile Software Engineer with over 25 years experience acquired in a series of demanding roles within the IT arena.

The past 8 years has been building up specialist knowledge of REST apis and microservices. Though I have background in systems integration, middleware and interfaces and lots of experience of modeling databases to relate to complex protocols.

I love to work remotely and did so very effectively for close to 7 years. I hope to break the commute and do it again.

My go-to technology (that I generally get paid for working in) is Java, Spring Boot snd Spring Cloud.

Big fan REST and Docker and containerisation rocked my world and changed the way I work (much like it did across the IT industry).

I dabble in many other languages and frameworks like Ruby and Groovy. My attention is currently on Go.
