About Me

Hi! I’m Mark Lawrence :wave:,

I love designing and building both front end (websites) and back end (APIs) software. I have over 25 years of experience in software development, working for organisations ranging in size from multinational enterprises to a small start-up. I’m a senior developer with a wide range of experience and technical expertise working primarily with C#/.net based software and websites. I have worked on projects ranging in size and complexity, in a variety of different industries.

I have set up a profile on CodersRank.io to detail my skills, experience and ongoing coding contributions. My CodersRank profile can be viewed at https://profile.codersrank.io/user/marklnz. I use the data from my CodersRank profile below to highlight my skills and experience. Also, my resume is available for downloaded here.

Developing Websites

With over 10 years of experience using tools like HTML5 and CSS3, Javascript libraries like jQuery and Angular.js, and Microsoft's ASP.Net MVC and WebAPI frameworks, I enjoy building stylish, yet functional, web applications for customers.

Architecture

I have software architecture experience at a variety of levels. My experience includes Enterprise Architecture work, as well as work developing software architecture elements, and reviewing architectures designed by others.

ALM and DevOps

Years of experience in enterprises has given me a strong understanding of the need for ALM and DevOps. Most recently I've made use of Microsoft's Azure DevOps to build a solid DevOps foundation for my current development team.

My Coding Activity

Here’s what my project contributions over the past year look like. This includes commits to my github projects as well as my activity in the commercial projects I’m working on. This chart forms part of my CodersRank.io profile.

My Skills

As the IT industry is constantly changing, I’m always adding new skills to my repertoire. I’m always ready for fresh challenges with new techniques and technologies. The skills I have used most over the past 12 months are shown on the chart below (courtesy of CodersRank).

I have much more detail and a more complete list of my skills in my resume, which you can view, download, or print here.
