Hello! I’m Dave. I’m a web application developer and IT trainer from the UK.
I first got to know the web back in the 90s when AltaVista was the search engine of choice. The first proper web application I built was for Norwich Union (now Aviva) back in 1998, through which the first ever insurance policy sold online was bought. Since then I’ve worked for various companies in both the UK and Spain. Now I’m a freelance web application developer and IT trainer.
I have a degree in computer science from the University of East Anglia and a master’s degree in advanced computer science from the University of Manchester. I wrote my master’s thesis about the Semantic Web at the University of the Basque Country.
I love teaching how to develop web applications, and I like to keep things simple!
