Tech, Oracle, user experience, coffee, design standards, and shameless ranting

MarkCaulfieldI am an independent software developer, wannabe entrepreneur, Web standards evangalist and most of all, seeker of the open standards based technology philosophy.

From 1999 I worked as an independent contractor developing software and designing system architecture. I have wide experience in software development, with Oracle PL/SQL / XMLDB, XML, XSD, XSLT, CSS, C# , VB.NET; web development with Oracle Apex, PHP/MySQL/Javascript, CSS, XHTML  and various Web-2.0 technologies, some graphic design, Oracle DBA, UNIX/Linux administration.

I write software primary for Oracle Internet environments and have worked as a software architect and developer with companies including SEPA, Scottish Enterprise, Shinetsu and other Public Sector service industries.

Im a bit of a geek really who loves nothing better than sitting with his tablet and a good coffee, righting the world wrongs with friends and family.

Although I spend a lot of time consulting and thinking about the bigger picture and how to save organsiations money whilst making their employees jobs more joyful (yes, joyful) I’ve always loved coding. I’m platform agnostic, but spend a lot of time in windows 7 on the desktop writing code either for Oracle or for the web using HTML5 and CSS3 and lots of jQuery goodness. Recently I’ve been working more on mobile using adopting responsive web techniques and getting my javascript hands dirty with MVVC with backbone.js and knockout.js. Yum.

I’m absolutely loving all the latest trends towards openness and collaborative coding, as well as the amazing tools that make it so much easier to create quality contemporary sofwtare. It’s a great time to be a coder.
