Summary:

I have experience working on all tiers of web development including strong front end coding skills,
application layer design and development in many languages and database theory; design and
optimisation on
several RDBMS. I can confidently hand code to all web standards.

Over the last few years I have worked extensively with Advanced JavaScript (Object Orientated,
prototypes, closures
, xhr

etc.) and am able to confidently hand code both with or with out the
use of
JS libraries (i.e. JQuery, Dojo, ExtJS etc.). I am able to hand code the HTML and CSS to go along
with this script to produce interactive, modern usable and accessibly User Inte
r
faces.

I have worked in many environments with a mixture of platforms,

languages and database and am
used to solving integration problems between new and existing systems.

I have work
ed in many different industries including media, banking and insurance.

I feel that it is
one of my strengths to understand different business

models, conveying my opinion of the best way
to achieve the business goals through optimisation of the front end to enhance user experience and
increase retention through to ensuring the back end fulfils the needs of all the various internal
departments t
o be able to use and update the site using various CMS systems and collect data
pertaining to user interaction from it.

Many of the industries I have worked in are very closely regulated so attention to detail was of great
importance and has become second
nature to me.

I enjoy a challenge and thrive on solving problems. I have had a wide range of experience with web
development and server configuration as I have worked for many small companies and had to
contribute to many aspects of IT.

I work well on my
own and also enjoy working as part of a team, I feel the ability to do both is
essential to any project.

I am a UK citizen from birth and I hold a full UK driving licence.

flights can then be booked online.



Published fares
-

these fares were retr
ieved directly from the
airlines GDS systems, any GDS could be 'plugged in' (i.e.
Sabre, Galileo etc) and booking made the same way.



Negotiated fares
-

these fares were retrieved from the travel
agents database of net fares and flight information and
book
ing was done through the GDS system.



Charter fare information and flight details were obtained
from another database and integrated into the results



Budget fares

As the budget airlines do not provide an
interface to allow third parties to display their

fares a screen
scraping technique is used.
