Jim Wright

Discussing all things around software engineering.

About me

I’m Jim Wright. I live just outside of London with my partner, rabbit, dog, cat, and loads of tech.

I started learning to code in order to gain the True Fan achievement in Trials2 SE by creating an IRC client that would allow players to chat outside of the game. After that I was hooked. I started making games in Flash (back when it was still Macromedia!) and went on to enjoy IT a lot during school. I started on web development to host my games online, and went on to study Computing at university and have since worked as a full stack web developer and backend engineer in various roles.

I am an experienced Software Engineer with a demonstrated history of working in the internet industry. Skilled in API development, Systems Architecture, Database Design. Strong engineering professional with a Bachelor of Science (BSc) focused in Computing from Canterbury Christ Church University.

What is this for?

Mostly I post here so that I can solidify my understanding of topics. It also serves as a way to keep track of what I have been working on. Hopefully other people will find these topics at least mildly interesting or educational.
