I am a self-taught programmer who specialises in web development, who is currently studying for an A-Level in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. I am currently searching for a work experience placement somewhere within the IT and computing industry, with the hopes that it would allow me to experience first-hand what it is like to work in such a field, and to contribute my skills to a workplace.
I have had experience in the IT and computing industry multiple times in the past:
I am part of a team known as Courcat Development, a small group who develop games in their free time. As a member of the team, I am responsible for managing our IT resources such as our web server, and writing a lot of the server-side parts of our projects. I also help manage and lead some of our projects.
This has taught me a range of valuable skills, such as managing IT assets, project leadership, and the ability to work well as part of a team.
Borough Green Computer Care
For the past two years, I have been running my own computer repair business called Borough Green Computer Care. I pride myself on making sure that the customer is satisfied with the result of my repairs, and if I am unable to fix it, the customer pays no charge.
My experience running Borough Green Computer Care has taught me a wide range of skills, including managing a business, managing finances, and, of course, making repairs to computer equipment.
During the buildup to my GCSEs, my school asked me to create a web-based clock to use during examinations. I decided to publish the code for it open source, which can be found at the link below.
Creating the exam clock taught me how to use HTML’s canvas system, which has turned out to be extremely useful in many of my other projects.
So far, I have taken my GCSE examinations, and achieved the following grades:
- Biology: A
- Chemistry: A
- Computer Science: A*
- English Language: 6
- English Literature: 6
- ICT: Distinction*
- Maths: 8
- Physics: A*
- Religious Education: A
