<h2><a href='http://www.makersacademy.com'>Makers Academy</a></h2>
<h3>Senior Coach, 2013 – 2014</h3>
<p>At <a href='http://www.makersacademy.com'>Makers Academy</a> - a 12-week coding bootcamp in Shoreditch, I was lucky enough to train over 200 amazing junior developer (who in most cases had no prior coding experience). I was responsible for running the course's second half focusing on web technologies including Ruby on Rails, databases &amp; SQL (Postgres), node.js, TDD w/ RSpec and Jasmine, AJAX, WebSockets.</p>
<p>It was a pleasure to design a curriculum to cover such a wide range of material in a short time, and to teach so many incredible students, who have gone on to jobs at the likes of Facebook, GDS, Thoughtbot, Pusher, Pivotal Labs and Amazon. A couple of media appearances from my time at MA are below:</p>

<h2>Consultancy</h2>
<h3>2006 – 2013</h3>
<p>I spent seven years working as a software developer on a consultancy basis for a wide range of clients - Fortune 500 companies, several Silicon Valley startups, online retailers and NGOs including UNESCO. I was most often working with Ruby on Rails, JavaScript and jQuery, and RDBMSs (especially PostgreSQL) with a focus on building reliable, performant web apps that users loved.</p>
