I am a Technical Software Architect, having been a Full Stack Web Application Developer for 9 years, based near Winchester, Hampshire, UK.

I primarily work with .Net architecture with a mixture of APIs, SQL datastores and legacy code. I also work with interfacing with client and partner APIs, business requirements and producing high-level designs down to working agily with the technical leads on the detail of the design.

I currently have an interest in Python, AWS, graph databases and API design and security.

I keep a blog for a couple of reasons; to share knowledge and skills that I have gained and also in the hope that next time I find myself in a similar situation I can find the solution here much faster than I did originally. I have made it public so that others can have access to the solutions too, hopefully saving more coding time!

If you have a better solution or any other comments please do post them, and please let me know if any of the solutions work for you :)

How about admitting that a mix of coursework modules and exams instead of a completely exam-based do-or-die-on-the-day approach was actually better and fairer? #returnToCoursework
