Hello, I’m Alan Farquharson. If you are here, I guess you already know that, though!

I have just finished my Computing Degree at Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU), gaining a 2.1 Bachelor’s_degree with honours.

During my 3rd year at University I did a placement year. I worked at Chameleon Interactive, with the role Web Developer  and as the Server Administrator, with a team of guys from all over Manchester. I worked on projects such as AMREFHelpAgeNorth West Air Ambulance and NASS. Whilst there, I developed my skills in PHP (OOP and procedural), MySQL, HTML, AJAX/JavaScript, XML, RSS, Photoshop and SSH (Linux – Mainly RHEL (Cent-OS/Fedora) and Debian (Ubuntu) based systems).

Since then, I’ve worked at – I worked here from April 2012 to December 2016, working my way up to Senior Web Developer and have been working on internal and external  Web Applications for all sorts of large and medium sized projects. Whilst at Magma, I also helped run the PHPNW conference, which runs (usually) the first October of the year.

Since December 2016, I’ve worked at working on the portal system used worldwide by a few hundred thousand customers every 24 hours!
