Hi, my is Girish Patel. I have been Web developer for over 18 years and have had the opportunity to work

During my career I have successfully worked on all stages of a project life cycle, from the gathering of requirements and design stage, through to development, testing and support.
Most of my experience has been in backend development but for the past several years my interest and experience has increased in the use front end technologies, an exciting area that is moving and growing at a relatively fast pace compared to other technologies.
I have four young children who make sure I am kept busy outside of work.
