Please read on if you'd like to know more about me and my skills
My name is Joseph Allen and I am 30 years old. I am currently working as a developer for British Software Development in Bournemouth. At British, my roles typically include working on Laravel and Angular.js web applications for a variety of different clients with different needs. I also am responsible for setting up and maintaining a lot of hosting for the projects.
Before Joining British Software Development in summer 2015, I studied Digital Media Design (BA Hons) at Bournemouth University and have since returned to teach a workshop for the current final year students. Prior to attending Bournemouth University, I studied Access to HE: Media at the Bournemouth and Poole College. I am a digital media designer, developer and creator. For web, I am able to design and build websites as well as develop web based applications and back end server setup. Aside from web I also have skills in designing and developing apps for smartphones and wearables, such as Android, iOS, Pebble smartwatch and Google Glass.
At British Software Development and in my own time, I like to learn new skills and hone my current ones. These include:
PHP (WordPress, Laravel and Magento)
Linux (Ubuntu, CentOS, Apache, MySQL/MariaDB, Nginx, Raspberry Pi)
AWS, Rackspace and DigitalOcean
Docker and Vagrant/Homestead
HTML and CSS
Java (Android/Google Glass and Processing)
C (Pebble Smartwatch)
Objective C and Swift (iOS)
Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, GIMP and Inkscape
Adobe After Effects and Premiere
When I’m away from the computer screen, I enjoy collecting and playing retro video games and tabletop games with friends. If the weather is actually nice in England, I can sometimes be seen riding my motorcycle around.
