"A passionate, dedicated developer, Saul's heavily driven towards creating well-architected, maintainable code using sound development practices. His suggestion of a machine learning algorithm for classification based upon free-text descriptions was incredibly useful and time-saving, a testament to his university education and the effort he puts into learning. He's thrilled by learning new technologies and I've no doubt that he will have a fantastic career." - Alan Pearce | Former Senior Backend Developer at Studio-40
I got a boxed copy of Visual Studio 2005 for my birthday way back. Since then I've been writing C#, building websites and engineering databases for freelance clients or just for the thrills. My particular areas of passion/specialisms are encryption, data compression, artificial intelligence and software architecture. I also love programming language design.
There is always something else to learn, another valuable technique to perfect or another piece of knowledge to take in. This is my philosophy and always will be.
Programming is what I'm all about. Ideal code is elegant, expressive, clear and concise. I write as close to this as I can.
I particularly enjoy collaborating on research and writing with some of the incredibly talented people I know.
Whether it's an emerging technology or an established standard, there's always something else to discover.
Of an afternoon, I'll break out the Arduino, Raspberry Pi or even the Galileo for a spot of electronics.
Writing and performing piano music is my second-favourite thing behind programming.
Feel free to contact me.
