My name is Steven Hawkes. I have been living and working in Switzerland now for over 12 years.
My background is mostly realtime but since living in Switzerland I thought it wise to gain some banking experience, so for the past 4 years I have been working in the Investment Bank Arena with UBS. During my time in Software development I have had a number of roles from Developer to Project Manager but always with a hands on theme.
I have had first hand expose to a number of methodologies and for the past 2 years I have been actively using Agile Methods. I have tended to specialise in .NET developement with a focus on GUI developments. I also have an active interest in build / test automation.
My goal is to work on a project where the GUI is based on the Composite Application Block (CAB), middle tier based on CSLA and the database connectivity to be based on NHibernate. For which i am still searching :-)
