Hi there, I’m Mark!

I’m a software developer working primarily on web applications using various languages including PHP, node.js and Python. In 2016 I obtained the Code Institute¬†Diploma in Software Development from Edinburgh Napier University which focuses on full stack development using AngularJS on the front-end and Python by way of django and flask on the back-end.

After completing the Code Institute Diploma in Software Development I was brought back as a mentor for the online version of their course and through that have discovered a passion in helping other developers getting a start in the development industry. I’m also a volunteer with Open Sourcing Mental Illness (OSMI) and do what I can to help spread the word in the tech community that it’s ok to not always be ok.

By day I work as a software developer for Transpoco further developing the SynX platform. Outside of work in addition to being a mentor for Code Institute and volunteering with OSMI, I enjoy photography using both a digital SLR camera as well as with my DJI drone. When time permits I like to contribute to Open Source projects, namely joind.in as well as researching new technologies to try and stay ahead of the ever evolving world of web development.
