I have a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from Canterbury University. I completed most of this as a full time student before leaving to work full time, only recently returning to complete the degree extramurally via Massey University.
I also hold a wide range of Microsoft certifications including the following:
- Microsoft Certified Application Developer (MCAD)
- Microsoft Certified Solution Developer (MCSD)
- Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS)
- Microsoft Certified Professional Developer (MCPD)
Project Management has recently started to become an interest of mine, so I am considering eventually aiming for something like the PMP certification. At present I enjoy listening to Cornelius Fichtner’s “The Project Management PrepCast” on my way to work each morning. I can highly recommend this resource.
Learning is a life long task, so I also tend to round out my study with attendance at professional conferences such as the Mobile and Embeddeed Developers Confrence (MEDC), as well as regular attendance to the Christchurch branches of the New Zealand .NET User Group.
