My name is Annie Luxton and I’m a Software Engineer. Developer. Programmer. Scripter. Geek?
A little history on me. I was born in Rome, Italy and have lived in Rome (Italy) , Lima (Peru), Mexico City (Mexico), Wellington (NZ), Brisbane (Australia), London (UK) and am currently living and working in Amsterdam (Netherlands). I finished up at University in Wellington at the end of 2003 with a First Class BSc with Honours in Computer Science and a BSc in Computer Science and Mathematics.
I think the best part about being a software engineer is that you can work in so many different industries. I’ve developed solutions around GIS, online auctions, government agencies, streaming music services, hotel websites, photo printing and online travel agencies. In my spare time, I’ve tried my hand at mobile app development and more recently, electronics (Internet of Things). I’ve worked with a lot of different people and technologies and all in all, I’ve certainly learnt a lot.
This blog is intended to be a place for me to write down some of my ideas and blog about bits of code that I have found useful or interesting… :)
