Ben Jenkins

SOFTWARE DEVELOPER IN GLOUCESTERSHIRE

ABOUT ME

I'm a 27 year old software developer from Gloucestershire. I lived in, and studied at the University of Exeter for 3 years earning myself a degree in information technology and business management, until moving back home to Gloucestershire in 2010, though am often found spending my weekends with my girlfriend in Surrey. I'm currently working as a lead software developer near Bristol developing bespoke data driven web applications for both the public and private sector

I first became interested in development in 2002 playing call of duty online - realising I could unzip the game files and modify the code using notepad, I was soon hooked on creating my own additions to the game. I became interested in web development at an early age, which started with personal PHP/mySQL development. In more recent years since my degree and career, I have more of an interest in software application architecture and develop web applications using Microsoft technologies.
