About Jon Preece
I am currently a Software Developer working for Parasol, which is part of the Optionis group of companies, 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 constant education to improve my skills and productivity.
I completed a Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree at the University of Chester in 2010, finishing within the top 5% of all students, achieving a classification 1 (First Class) degree with honours. This is to date one of my proudest achievements.
Since the end of University, I have become a Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP). You can view my current transcript here.

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.
It is my goal for 2014 to complete Microsoft’s MCSD (Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer) training course to further improve my technical ability. I intend to complete this before April 2014.
