Hi! The name is James. I am currently working as a freelance software developer / locum pharmacist in New Zealand, but I will be starting my internship with Unison on the 1st of November. You can count on me to format my code nicely (I love my vertically lined-up nested code), write insightful reports, and talk to people fairly normally (unlike the guys seen in IT Crowd).
Stemming from my interest in HTML and CSS coding, I enrolled at Eastern Institute of Technology in Hawkes Bay to seriously pursue programming and database administration (exposure includes Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server). I scored straight A+ for all completed papers, with 94% being the average score. The papers accomplished are as below
I studied at The University of Auckland. For my elective subject, I pursued the Introduction to Computer Science paper and achieved an A+
I am developing a custom SQL query designer service that is targeted at pharmacy owners who wish to find out specific information about their business that is otherwise not available via the normal reporting function.
I am also developing a PHP / MySQL dynamic website complemented with a C# application for community pharmacy use in New Zealand. The planning process involved coming up with wireframes, user stories, and UML diagrams, while the execution phase takes into account MVC and TDD during the development process. Having completed the application development, efforts are now concentrated on usability testing.
When I am not messing around with coding, you can find me out cycling on the road in Hawkes Bay or doing a bit of cooking. On top of that, I recently cycled from Napier to Mahia (170km) in September, stayed a night there, and cycled back to Napier the next day!
