The First Post

So this is the first post. I’ll try to keep it short and simple.

I’ve been wanting to do this for quite some time and it’s, as with many things in life, one of those things you decide to put off and say “I’ll do it tomorrow” or “I’ll do it when I have time”. So I thought I’ll just go for it and see what happens…

I’d think the best way to start will be to describe myself, Aaron Waddingham, and what the plans are for this site.

Well, I’m a Computer Scientist (by education) and currently working as a Software contractor which I have been doing for just over 12 months. My own introduction to Software Development was through an academic environment specifically the University of Glamorgan, now called the University of South Wales. I studied two qualifications at the university the first was an HND in Computing as I had almost zero software experience up to that point and the second was a BSc(Hons) in Computer Science and graduated in 2014 with a First. From there I moved into my first Software Development role with General Dynamics and during the time I was there I worked on 4 different projects. During the middle of 2017, I decided to move into contracting and made the move in August of that year with my first contract being with MBDA. I won’t go into any details on what I have been doing on those projects as I plan to add a “Projects/CV” section to the site in the future.

So moving on, as mentioned I’ve been planning on starting a website so I can begin sharing my knowledge and experience with a wider audience as well as provide potential clients with a glimpse of the skills I can bring to the table.

Thanks for reading all the way through the FIRST post and let’s get going…
