Craig Wood Dip.CPT, MACS, CT

I am a freelance programmer and web developer with considerable experience in the analysis, design, and development of industrial and financial applications, using languages such as C, C++ and Visual Basic. For many years, I have also been involved in the design and construction of web sites and e-commerce applications. Projects like these are a bit more "right-brain", allowing me to exercise my more artistic talents.

I have been fairly busy updating the various sites I support, and it seems as soon as I finish one round of core or security updates, a notification arrives announcing the next one...
