OpenEdge Developer / Full Stack Developer

Age : 48

Hi there!

I am Senior Developer with Pace IT (UK) having previously worked with Advanced on Progress-OpenEdge products like OpenPeople & OpenAccounts starting way back in 1995.

With 26 years development experience I’ve been heavily involved in all areas  of the software development life cycle.  From system design all the way through to customer support & training.  And in this industry, you can’t help always learning something new.

I enjoy making things work.  Debugging and problem solving are probably my favourite bits to work on, and I also love meeting new folks and getting to know their issues so to help them. 

I’m very comfortable with in-house team and front line customer facing comms.
