Hi, i'm David Hazelden!
Full Stack Software Developer
We live in a world of creation, our thoughts are designed and built, I'm a builder.
I've been tackling IT projects for over 18 years, I would consider myself a jack of all trades, and if I labelled myself, a full stack engineer, as I've worked on every different aspect of IT systems from conception to completion.
My business interests are not just limited to the tech sector. I've got essential skills in all building trades (I've studied Metal Smithing and Electrical Engineering). I've been involved heavily in the equestrian industry, from a management side and hands on, including stable, arena and fencing construction and installation.
I'm very competent in all vehicles, with 1000's of hours in ATVs, Tractors, Diggers, Fork Lifts and various Farm and Construction Equipment, I've even had several lessons in a helicopter, I ride a motorcycle and have driven a car over 170mph. On this theme, I've maintained and repaired various vehicles, from regular servicing, tyre changes, drivetrain repair and vehicle detailing and cleaning.
University of Brighton - 2001
I followed up my advanced double GNVQ and AS Level with Software Engineering, at the time I was heavily into web development in ASP Classic and learning on web languages such as ADA wasn't a good fit for my mindset back then. I believed the course to be antiquated and outdated. Sadly there were very few web orientated degrees in the UK. Still learned much in my year attending, but decided to start my own company and work part time between projects.
Plumpton College - 2008
I decided to take a year out to do Blacksmithing/Metalsmithing, using a classical coke forge to shape steel. I've made Chain Mail sections, and domed copper bowls. In terms of fabrication, I've learned Arc, Mig & Gas weldin, and I've also done Jewellery Craft including carving and pouring a solid Silver Anvil ring.
Lancing College - 2009
After thoroughly enjoying my Metalsmithing course, I wanted to add Electrician to my belt, I completed the first year of the course, but moved back into Web Development to work on projects with local companies and then go into business with a life long friend.
