Hi and welcome to my site. My name is Wayne and I am a husband and proud father. I am really passionate about engineering software the correct way. I hate doing things twice or for no reason and that has driven me to put my knowledge down on this site to share with others.
In my professional capacity I am the Cloud Architect and Scrum Master of the Cloud team at Assima where I have the responsibility for security, infrastructure and deployment of a cloud based product.
I manage a team of 9 that consist out of software developers, system administrators and software testers.
My roots are firmly based within software engineering and engineering practices and I view myself as a software engineer and not a software developer.
It is difficult to put me in a box and say “This is what I can do as a person” as technology and requirements change every year, my skills change. In the end I help engineer sustainable business solutions.
Before Assima I was the Co-Founder and Architect at Netready Software. I am really proud to say that there are some of the software systems that I design 16 years ago that are still running at clients today some being on the fortune 500.
I also co-founded the innovative Oracle media company with my brother Neil back in 2012 when we were trading as NW Barker. My brother Neil has since taken it over completely allowing me to focus on my career.
I have drive and ambition and have always found myself in leadership positions, its definitely one of my skills and hope find myself in an executive leadership position of a company in the next 5 years to 10.
I have 20+ years experience working mainly on back end systems using Microsoft development languages although I owe my OO foundation to Delphi and Pascal. I have been privileged to work for companies that valued technical knowledge and had a strong focus on planning, design and implementation.
I have worked on several types of application through the years ranging from stand-alone desktop application, client server applications, web applications, mobile applications and Enterprise level SOA based cloud solutions.
