Don't know me?

  • Fifteen years experience as a lead decision-maker, manager, company director, application developer and administrator mainly in the micro (start-up), small, social and community (charitable) enterprise sectors:
    • Maintaining oversight on project delivery, systems development, compliance, public advocacy and other key operations such as financial control.

Right now, I'm probably either:-

  • Researching wicked messes with a bias towards culture and cognition or
  • Developing another web app for Linux (Apache), iOS or Android with Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) based on (X)HTML(5), CSS(2-3), (My)SQL(i), PHP, JavaScript/Angular/jQuery, Bootstrap and (Geo)JSON or
  • Practising yoga.

I offer:-

  • Expert knowledge of systems and network administration for Linux
    • Mailservers, Webservers: Apache, Tomcat… and SQL database servers
  • Expert knowledge of API's from all the usual suspects: Google, Twitter, Facebook, Microsoft, Apple Developer and Amazon.
  • In-depth knowledge of many popular web packages:
    • Drupal, Joomla, Wordpress, CiviCRM, Wiki, Concrete5, phpList, OSCommerce, Zen Cart and a few others
  • Knowledge of network and system security issues
  • Knowledge of GIS and VCS

I am best solving problems - often on my own initiative, but sometimes as part of a small team and I can manage contributions from non-technical and inter-departmental co-workers and volunteers too. email
