Welcome. My name is Christos Matskas and I am a software developer and keen technologist. I love everything that has to do with coding and my goal is to continually grow my knowledge and expertise by learing daily. I am mainly developing against the .NET stack and I strongly prefer C# though I’m open to other languages as well.
I run a small consultancy firm that develops bespoke applications and websites. In the past 7 years, I have been fortunate enough to get involved in some interesting projects and this has given me the opportunity to develop my technical experience and improve my project management skills. Further to my core development work, I have a number of smaller projects developing applications for iOS, Android and Windows Phone (7 & 8).
My experience includes working as a senior software engineer / database administrator for a number of Finance Sector companies such as Markit, DataExplorers, Ignis Asset Management etc. I’m currently working one a new project at Bede gaming as a senior DBA and infrastructure architect, migrating their existing infrastructure to Windows Azure.
When I don’t do development work, I like to read and watch TV . On weekends you will find me spending most of my time with my family. When the weather permits it, we like to be as much outdoors as possible and visit various places such as museums and castles (plenty of them in Scotland) or any other venue that can stimulate and entertain us.
