Hi! The name is James. In the last six years, I have been working in New Zealand as a community pharmacist. With only one paper to complete in the second half of this year (2016), I am looking at making the exciting transition into software development. 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 have enrolled at Eastern Institute of Technology in Hawkes Bay to seriously pursue programming and database administration (exposure to date include 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 a pharmacy outlet based 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; right now I am learning about entity framework.
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. I will be cycling from Napier to Mahia (180km) in September, stay a night there, and hopefully still have the legs to cycle back!
