Retired professional able to undertake work as a software developer and as an editor of English texts. I am a Physics graduate of Imperial College, London (B.Sc. and Ph.D.) For over 35 years I have been involved in programming projects part time, some contracted and some voluntarily, in Algol, Assembler, FORTRAN, C, C++ GLPro, Perl and PHP. Now retired, I have plenty of time to put these skills to work as a sole freelancer known as "Festival Software" focussing on custom PHP applications since 2008. I am committed to writing solid, commented, error-trapped and tested code. I believe good programming style is important for readable and maintainable code. My terms include 2 months free support including alterations broadly within the original specification. For many years I was a member of the Association of C and C++ Users, an organisation of programmers who care about professionalism in programming and are dedicated to raising the standard of programming. The attention to detail required by a programmer is a useful skill in editing and writing English, so that content is clearly communicated to the reader. My motivation is as much to complete interesting and challenging projects as for the money earned. That is why I prefer to set a price for a project and stick to it.
