I hope your weekends have been going well (hopefully not trapped in snow drifts on the Desert Road)?
I have just seen this users group for the first time, and thought to reach out to you all regarding potential web developer opportunities. I am seeking, primarily, junior-level positions within the South Island/Wellington regions, or opportunities that allow me to work remotely.
I spend copious amounts of hours every week pouring over dev-related news, and experimenting with different ways of doing things. When I'm not doing this, I work on various open-source projects to keep my dev-brain ticking over. I am very passionate about being a developer, and I would really like to continue progressing my I.T career forward - some day, I'd love to be the more senior guy who helps mentor others like myself to being the best they can be. If I am given the chance to again, I would love to put these words into action.
Besides I.T and coding, I have a long interest in cricket. I played as an opening bowler and lower-order batsman for a few seasons, and also helped out with my son's cricket team when the season's on. Walks among native bush are a favourite of mine too - they really help after spending hours working on a particular coding project. I also watch various other sports as well - mostly rugby league and union, soccer, and sometimes athletics.
Although I'm not a naturally overt person, I do love interesting discussions, and generally love a good laugh (playing Cards Against Humanity with past coworkers was a highlight of mine). I love to be focused, although I always leave that door open if people need my input on anything. I am also just as comfortable working on my own as much as in a team.
Even if you do not currently have any suitable developer opportunities, feel free to network with me. I am looking at improving and building on my network, so feel free to get in touch.
Have a great week!
