My Skills

Having worked in IT for 30 years, I've picked up a number of key skills.
Below is a summary of those skills, some of which could be useful to you.
Experienced in every aspect of software development, ensuring highly accurate and robust IT systems with the required quality. In recent years I have focused on building systems that are located in the cloud, accessed via a browser and available from anywhere with an internet connection.
Experienced in designing and building efficient databases, now focussing on MySQL.
Experienced in working with clients and IT departments alike to design working solutions via the use of a range of analysis tools and frameworks.
Experienced in informing users how to use the systems I have built, complete with exercises, ensuring all users get the most of the systems.
I believe in keeping existing skills up-to-date while learning new skills, so have recently added VueJS to my skillset.

My Technology Stack


About Me

AWSP Founder, Andy Wood

I am a software engineer with over 30 years experience of designing, developing and delivering software applications.

Over the years I have worked in many industries, namely manufacturing, healthcare and hospitality. I have worked as a permanent employee and also as a fixed-term contractor. For the past nine years I have been freelance, working on behalf of multiple simultaneous clients.

Since 2010, I have focussed solely on developing applications for the cloud using the php stack (php, HTML, CSS, JavaScript and jQuery, VueJS and CodeIgniter and the mySQL database). This has allowed me to sharpen my skills in a specific set of technologies in order to produce higher quality apps and provide a better service to my clients.

I love making software and training people to help them and their organisations reach their goals. With well-defined and well-designed software applications, together with top class training, I am convinced any organisation can overcome any obstacle.

Always one to seek new challenges, I am trying to learn Italian while serving clients. In September 2019, shortly after passing my 30 year career anniversary, someone described me as "a veteran of the software industry" - I've yet to get over it!

His continued support over the years has been equally invaluable. I would personally recommend Andy Wood for IT services to anyone. 10/10" Grahame Atkins, Headway Luton
