    Versatile Multimedia Development Ltd

    Senior .NET Developer

    Since the turn of year I have been focusing on Xamarin as a key development skill, recently resulting in my obtaining Xamarin Certified Mobile Developer status. I’d always took a keen interest in mobile development, but was waiting for a product to easily embrace and utilise my .NET and 15+ years of C# middle tier experience. Xamarin fitted this perfectly and was now at a more mature stage to for me to eagerly pursue this impressive mobile development platform.

    Also spent time working on revamping and redeveloping outdated website, with bootstrap, Angular, MVC, C#, IOC and with SQL Server back end. Also developing MVC application framework, to allow development focus to be on business rules, and speed up of actual development, with Angular integration using C# templates.

    And finally working an Umbraco .Net driven CMS website, for advertising private properties.
