I suppose I could kick off without introducing myself, but that would be rather rude.
I always write Samuel Jack in my by-line in the vain hope that the second and third syllables of my name will get a hearing; I'm invariably called Sam.
twentythirty-something software developer living near Bromsgrove in the UK. Through my company, Seaturtle Software Ltd, I work with customers world-wide solving challenging software problems. Get in touch if you have something that fits the bill.
My portfolio spans the sectors. I started off my career working mainly in the nuclear industry (where my applications were used to oversee the clean-up operations at a major UK nuclear site). I spent a few happy years developing a spreadsheet modelling platform aimed at financial directors. Most recently I've been working in the entertainment sector, writing software for DJs. Oh - and I also found time to create a little mobile phone game.
The thing that I love about being a software developer is having ideas and then seeing them come to life - making something that works and is useful. That's one reason for the title of my blog. The other is that, now that C#3.0 is out, everyone is going on about functional programming. So I thought I'd have some fun in finding out what-on-earth they're talking about. Perhaps you'd like to join me?
