About me

TechnologyOne allows me to create software solutions that are used by people in Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.

I started my journey at a high school in Brisbane. I did a class that was called IPT (Information Processing Technology) and found I really enjoyed it so decided to continue my studies a Queensland University of Technology studying a Bachelor of Information Technology.

During my study I did a co-op program allowing me to work full time in industry while getting credit for my studies. Once I graduated, I did a graduate program with TechnologyOne and have been working there since 2013. 

Working as a software developer has given me the flexibility to make lifestyle choices that some people might only dream of. I now live on a hobby farm in Southeast Queensland with fruit and nut trees and animals including cows, sheep and guinea fowl.

About my role

  • Analytical
  • Flexible
  • Innovative
  • Logical
  • Reliable

A software developer is responsible for designing, building and maintaining software. To create software, a programming language is used. It is a written language used to communicate with computers.

Before a programmer writes code, they need to consider how their changes might affect the program. For larger changes a design is written. This can be done in conjunction with a Business Analyst.

Once a part of the code is changed, a programmer tests the code. This can be done through manually testing as well as writing tests in the code.

After finishing the code changes there is a quality assurance process, before any customers receive the new code. If issues are found, they come back to the developer to fix as bugs.

15 year old me!!

“There are always ways to get around your weaknesses. When I was in high school, I was a C/D student in English and I still struggle with it. I have found ways around it, using text-speech programs and spelling / grammar checkers.”
