Hello world!

A bit about me and my interests

I'm Dave, a software engineer currently studying Computer Science MSci at Royal Holloway University of London. I have a strong enthusiasm for web development using Python and JavaScript but I'm really keen to try tools from other languages too! I've gained professional software engineering experience using Python whilst working for Cubic Corporation and also whilst working for my university. However, I've become familiar with programming through hours of practice in building things that interest me.

Working at Siemens and Thales for 5 years in Signalling and Telecoms engineering, prior to university, provided a solid foundation of boolean logic which accelerated my learning experience when it came to software engineering. I like solving riddles, puzzles and playing chess because I enjoy a the opportunity to problem solve -- I've participated in Hackathons and coding competitions/challenges. These moments have tested and proven my ability to creative under pressure.
