Hi, I am Dave Gill and I am a Developer.
I also do the administration and security for the various servers at work as well. Not that I am an expert in either but it is one of those places. The websites are based on a LAMP stack which pretty much looks after itself. There is also some nginx stuff peppered about the place.
I am also revising at the moment for my Java Certification Exam which I am due to sit on the 6th January 2014.
In my spare time I do some work for Startups. I assisted in the development of a Taxi booking site called Cabfix, did some back end engine stuff for a site called GRABR and did bits of technical consultancy for a couple of others. I have taken that a bit further now and have started a company with some friends in the States...
In the past I have built simple single user systems to being a cog in a big wheel creating massive multi users systems for health services. I go far back that my experience also includes building Command Line Only apps.
I write my first program in 1982 and built my first commercial website in 1997 which is used for tracking parcels. I am pleased to say that a lot of stuff that I built professionally in the 90's is still in use.
