Hi folks! I've been a software professional for - gulp! - 17 years now, and I still enjoy it as much as I did as a graduate!
After graduating top of my Honors class at university, I went on to work at a software consultancy based in Melbourne, Austraila. While there I spent all day, every day involved in every stage of software development - data models, SOAP and REST APIs, web-application logic and web-based user interfaces. I've since moved on to working as an independent software consultant.
The one constant in my career has been the need to learn, and keep on learning every day. This is one of the reasons I enjoy teaching and presenting education materials to help other software professionals keep on improving themselves.
