Working in commercial web development, it is important that my code is effective, robust, maintainable and readable. Our current project is built on modern software architecture principles to provide the speed and reliability needed for the modern web, including; DDD (Domain Driven Design) to provide loose coupling and high cohesion, CQRS for maintainability and scalability, ASP.NET with MVC5, MSSQL Server DB and DI (Dependency Injection) using Simple Injector (https://simpleinjector.org) to aid decoupling. Add to this the latest in front end tech (Razor, Bootstrap, Telerik) and of course the power of Javascript and the JQuery framework and you have yourself a modern, clean, maintainable and powerful platform that is compatible with multiple devices. We use Mercurial for source control and Jira (Atlassian) for our Agile Scrum project management.

Andrew is a valuable member of the development team at Ticketing Ventures Ltd. He has the drive, enthusiasm and enjoyment in programming that is reflected in his day to day work which is a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend him as he will provide valuable input to all projects he is assigned to.
