I specialise in object-oriented programming in multiple languages across many platforms including core Java for Mac and Windows apps plus Objective-C & Swift of iOS apps for iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch. I have several years experience working with advanced database functions in MSSQL Server and MySQL and portable databases such as SQLite.
Built for Mac and Windows. My portfolio includes business critical desktop apps installed at locations accross the UK. I've also delivered app installations to multiple continents.
I'm a passonate and creative iOS developer and enjoy pushing the boundries with the latest tech. Check out my gadget house project in my portfolio to learn more of my "never say it can't be done, just because it hasn't been done...yet!" attidue to development.
Working with databases for the past 10 years has given me a weath of experience creating and maintaining databases on multiple hosts. I have experience building small DBs to sit behind an iOS app though to much larger, almost 100 million row, server side databases.
I support every application that I've released. This may be directly in the form of bug fixes, patches and new functionality, or in the form of personal & team training on how to problem solve and maintain the app, database or project in question.
Here is a collection of my projects including apps designed for Mac OSX, Windows XP through to Windows 10, Windows Server ,iPhone, iPad and Watch OS.
