Bespoke Software

Services Offered

I can produce software in a variety of languages including C++, Visual Basic and C#. I can offer fixed-term, fixed-price and project-based software development. For further information please contact me.

I am Brighton-based with my own transport so can visit your company to discuss your requirements.


I am an experienced software developer with more than 6 years’ commercial experience of C, C++, Visual Basic 6 and SQL software development, and more than 3 years’ experience of designing and developing software in C#. Educated to degree level in Physics and Computing, I also have a further City & Guilds certificate in programming and coding in C. These qualifications have given me an excellent science and computing background.

My previous work has included writing and maintaining C# (Windows Forms), Visual C++ (MFC) and Visual Basic 6 applications in an industrial control environment. Many of these applications used ADO or DAO to obtain data from Microsoft Access or Microsoft SQL Server databases. This role also included developing and maintaining install software for a range of PC-based software and using version control systems.

I have extensive experience of coordinating the release of software products across multiple projects including maintaining any cross-project software components. I also supervised some of the software development and testing. I coordinated the testing which involved creating software and instrument networks, writing test specifications, regular testing, investigation of known faults and liaising with software developers and project managers, as well as supervising junior testing staff.
