About Me

My name is Ian Whittemore and I am currently working as an agile full-stack software engineer. Agile development is an approach to software development that focuses on rapid iteration and customer feedback.

Working in a agile environment involves learning the client requirements and requests and working with a team to complete duties in the given time frame. Other responsibilities include reviewing practices, code and implementations for potential issues and setbacks. I also collaborate with other developers, programmers, business analysts and project managers with the goal to develop the vision into a usable product.

I was a student at The University of Buckingham where I studied for a two-year bachelor’s degree in Software Entrepreneurship. I received a first-class degree with honours. This degree is a major in computing and a minor in business. This was done in two years by reduced holidays compared to other universities, having only 13 weeks off a year compared to upwards of 3 months. Afterwards, I completed a sponsored master’s degree in computing through research, done in under two years. Throughout my education, I have had a strong academic focus, including four A’s for A-level equivalents in South Africa as well as two public speaking awards.

I am skilled in interface design as from a young age I have assisted in producing 3D virtualization of houses, this transforms 2D plans into high-quality walk-through designs so people can experience their future properties based on their needs and desires. I am hands-on in designing what looks and feels the best for the individual application and how easily it can be made functional for others to ensure it’s something that they will enjoy using.

I am extremely interested in business and have learned more about this from my degrees and working. Having an entrepreneurial mind, I founded two businesses while studying at University. As all businesses do, I ran into problems and had to find creative solutions to solve them to continue on. I am continuously researching new ways on how to handle different situations and creating new ideas to develop existing businesses further. I feel that what I have learnt in my modules at University and my experiences working will help me succeed in a role that may need a business outlook.
