Samuel Slade

.NET Developer available for Contracts

After graduating from Huddersfield University with a First Class degree with Honours in Computer Games Programming, I have progressed rapidly within the software development industry. Currently, I am a Senior Software Developer working for an accountancy and payroll company, based in Altrincham, UK. I have strong knowledge of the .NET Framework, specifically through C#, and hold a keen interest in enterprise-level software architecture. I am looking to move into a Technical Lead position of a small team and work on developing my team management, project management and architectural knowledge.


Having used C# almost daily since my first year of University, I have become strongly skilled and knowledgable in its use and application. I have deep knowledge of the .NET Framework and the C# syntax.


My preferred presentation technology; I have worked with WPF applications of different varieties over the past few years. I am capable of solving complex, visual problems in creative ways.


Through regular use of SQL Server databases, I have become proficient in the language. I am capable of writing queries of varying complexity, as well as building schema objects from tables to stored procedures to functions.


Within the last two years, Git has quickly become my preferred choice for source control. I am continually expanding my knowledge of the command line features and am an advocate of the Git Flow branching model.
