Recapping 2022 This is bit later than I had planned but it’s good to recap the previous year and take stock of what you’ve done.  2022 was a busy year for me personally and professionally.   Going Independent I got back into contracting at the start of 2022 with the first involving leading agile teams of developers at NEXT Plc.

I spent some time 2016/17 working on NHS and criminal justice projects and knew what I was getting into again. If contracting is something you’re considering ..read more

The problem with this however was that each user in the system can set their own timezone in the application. This meant the WHERE clause would often fail as their timezone wasn’t aligned with the locale ..read more
