My name is Dave, and I've been a Software Developer since 2006. My whole career has been focused on Web Development, mainly using the Microsoft development platforms.

Before then, I studied at college and got a BsC Hons in Computing. In those days, I got exposure to JavaScript, PHP and a little bit of ASP.

I was lucky to get a break through in the world of web development by answering a newspaper job advert. I found a job where all the websites were written in Classic ASP, powered by a Microsoft Access database (remember that?).

I then moved on to the .NET Framework, starting off with version 2 and WebForms. I'm sort of glad I don't use them now as I had a bit off a hard time getting used to them.

To date, the bulk of my work has been writing web applications in .NET Framework version 4-4.7, powered with a SQL Server database. In these web applications, I had exposure to a number of JavaScript frameworks such as jQuery and RequireJS, and have had exposure to TDD tools such as XUnit.

Going forward, I'm looking to expand my horizons and been using ASP.NET Core for future web apps. I am also exploring a number of other JavaScript frameworks, such as Angular, TypeScript and React.
