About Jon Preece

I am currently a C# ASP.NET Web Developer working for a contractor accountancy firm, based in Warrington, Cheshire (UK).  I have been writing software since the late 1990′s as a hobbyist, and I have worked professionally in a several roles since 2008.  I am very enthusiastic about keeping up with the latest technologies and I believe in continuous education to improve my skills and productivity.

Career

I started my career working as a Junior Software Developer at Fantastic Media, where I developed a range of software including Bluetooth Advertising Software (written in C#, Windows Forms) and websites written in PHP/HTML 4.

My next moved led me to System C, where I worked on desktop software written in both Windows Forms and WPF for the healthcare industry, particularly the NHS.  Whilst there, I learnt a great deal about writing enterprise software for use by a large range of users with varying competencies, as well as how to write software for a range of platforms.  I earned a promotion to mid-level developer, and became a well-respected team member.  I often gave training workshops to help share my skills with other team members.

I then moved to Yellowbus Solutions Limited, where I lead a small team on a bespoke WPF application for the haulage industry. This project involved determining the client’s requirements, writing functional specifications, and designing and developing the application front to back. I liaised with the customer on a regular basis, giving progress updates and generally keeping the project on track. The solution was well received, with minimal bugs/incorrect functionality, and has gained significant traction in the market.

Currently I work as a mid-level web developer, working on various projects written in ASP .NET WebForms and ASP .NET MVC.  I also get daily hands on experience of JavaScript, HTML 5, CSS 3 and many other technologies.
