Most people will have seen this news already on social media: earlier this week I handed in my notice at the University of Manchester and will be leaving at the end of June. I enjoy working there, but sadly there isn’t enough work to keep me busy, and whilst the department I work in does value highly skilled technical people, the University does not, and this is reflected in the lack of promotional prospects and salaries.
So, as of 1st July I will be going freelance on a full time basis. There are a number of business ideas I want to try, but initially I’ll be concentrating on PHP development and system administration to pay the bills. If you know anyone who might be interested in these services, please do point them at my PHP developer site, which contains all my contact details.
