Throughout my degree I have designed web applications to be mobile friendly and I have enough knowledge with googles search engine optimisation to provide a good ranking in search results.
I am very interested in mobile apps, I have created applications on android platforms. One App I created was for a ski resort called BUQA. The app provided weather information for the resort and emergency contact information which also provided location services.
Understanding how an Ecommerce site works and working under a team of skilled developers who have developed database driven Ecommerce sites to be reliable and easy accessible at all times has been one of my greatest moments. I would love to help small businesses or developers on any ecommerce sites in the foreseeable future
I love databases, I work primarily with MSSQL but during my university days I have worked on Oracle databases and I attend conferences such as SQLBITS and enjoy read about SQL databases. I use regular queries day to day, but in my spare time I set myself adminatrative tasks with the AdventureWorks data set to test query performance, snapshots for backups, permissions and more.
Being a developer I have seen and come to revise heavily on security. I have been involved in many situations where understanding security has been an eye opening role. From SQL injection vulnerabilities, Ransom demands from offshore DDOS Attacks, viruses, keyloggers, Password Hashing Requirements and becoming PCI Compliant.
I was born in Royal Preston Hospital and raised in Chorley, a market place town of Lancashire, North West of England. My father, Mr Ted Ball Duxbury, raised me alongside my mother, Mrs Linda Ann Duxbury. My father was a disabled man who first taught me how to build my first computer. I lost both my parents during my university years although carrying on to achieve a first degree in my computer science course.
Why would I want to hear from you? well, if you are a nice person and share common interets or you'd just like to see how my experiences can influence you or your company.
