"You don't break ground by doing the same thing over and over and over. That's like standing in place. You have to risk to gain it all" - Corey Taylor

Simon is a final year Web Technology student at the University of Huddersfield with a year of practical experience. He particularly enjoys using back-end technologies such as PHP and MYSQL. His experience as a Web Assistant proved to be valuable for utilising and developing his skills within a professional working environment. One of Simons favourite projects to work on was creating a search tool using PHP, MYSQL, Bootstrap and HTML that searched and displayed results, based on data inputted by users. This was created following a brief which was later used by the Marketing Department at The University of Huddersfield. Other skills that he has learned within this role included SQL Injection Prevention, Terminal Four CMS System, jQuery and Ajax. He is proficient at both front-end and back-end web development and he is currently seeking graduate opportunities.
