Internet work

After leaving New College, myself and a business partner started our own publishing company, Brancepeth Computer Publications Ltd. We wrote, published and marketed reference books for A level Computing and for BTEC ICT courses. This company later became ICT Education Online specialising in online educational material for a range of computing courses. My work as a director of this company involved writing educational material, developing and maintaining our online systems, developing and maintaining a range of websites and dealing with customer problems.
This work gave me a very wide knowledge base for computer-related tasks including client and server side programming, database programming, using many design tools, the creation and maintenance of numerous websites and the creation of a wide range of multimedia e-learning materials.
My partner and I decided to dissolve the company in 2007, after which I did some freelance website design work for a local company. I continue to develop websites by commission.

My recent experience and use of IT tools includes:
Microsoft Office 2010 – Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access
Oracle, MYSQL and MSSQL
Adobe CS3, CS4 – Photoshop, Flash, Dreamweaver
Qarbon’s Viewlet Builder
Visual Studio, C#, Javascript, ASP, Visual Basic, Visual Basic for Applications, PHP
