About Steve Hawkins (Certified Xamarin Developer)

I’m a trusted software developer with over 20 years of development experience within a Microsoft based environment who thinks ‘out of the box’ when required. I have major development skills in C#.Net, Xamarin mobile and Sql server databases but also have programming experience in other languages and architectures including VB6 and C++. I have a sharp eye for details as well as quality and have worked through the whole software lifecycle on multiple projects. I’m self-motivated with very strong analytic and problem-solving capabilities but also deadline focused and thorough in my approach to projects. Some of the clients I have with in the past include Northumbria University, NPower, G4S, Carbon Labs and Prism Technologies.
