I'm an Application Developer and Software Architect for a wide variety of software solutions including websites and desktop applications. Most recently focussed on a bespoke warehouse management system using C# 3.5 and SQL Server 2008.

Since my move to .NET I've become active in the community, attending monthly usergroup meetings and various conferences. I've even made a foray into speaking at usergroups about topics I am passionate about.

While I love experimenting with new tech and have a hobby project hosted on CodePlex, my current focus is less on specific new technologies and more on good principles and techniques.

When not at work I'm a family man, biker, amateur photographer, guitarist and of course, software developer.

comment Does a software-controlled central heating programmer and thermostat exist?
I'm a software developer, so the PC-control is really the point. I want to experiment with writing maybe a website hosted on a server in the loft, that means I can control my thermostat etc from my Android phone. It's only for the hell of it, really.
