Me

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 :)

Incredibly proud that my 5-year-old daughter was just randomly whistling the Monkey Island theme tune ๐Ÿ˜

(note: I have only played age-appropriate bits with her)

My last normal photos before #lockdown2020 were of our first time at the local canoe club. It will be nice to get back one day. #StayHome #StayAlert #LastNormalPhotos https://t.co/ZxgQfXIKyy tekiegirl photo

Manโ€™s life saved by two off-duty firefighters and police officer --> https://t.co/jDLoBjkciC

A cyclist whoโ€™d gone into cardiac arrest was unlikely to have survived had it not been for the intervention of off-duty emergency service staff

I wonder what a similar look at devices from the @stereophonics concerts in #Manchester & #Cardiff in mid-March (13th/14th/15th) would show in the #UK?

There's a question for you @TectonixGEO
