My name is Gary Ewan Park and I work as a Senior Software Engineer up here in Aberdeen for Chocolatey Software, Inc.. If you want to get in touch with me, there are a number of social networking sites linked at the bottom of this page, as well as a contact form.
I graduated from the University of Aberdeen with a First Class Honours Degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. Looking back at the career that I have had, it strikes me that a Computer Science Degree might have served me better. On the other hand though, I do think it helps to be able to know about the hardware side of things, so that you can know what the software is trying to control.
In addition to coding, I love automating things. Especially around automated deployment of code, as well as infrastructure. Automate all the things!
For my sins, I am a self-confessed Microsoft Fan Boy. I don’t know what else to say other than I think that the .Net Framework is a great platform to build on, and I really can’t get enough of it. I am a certified Microsoft Developer, and I am more than happy to talk at length about anything geek related, so if you have any questions, feel free to get in touch.
Outside of work I like running on a semi-regular basis. I used to be an archer at University as well, but since graduating I haven’t done any. This is something that I would like to get back into though.
On 1st July 2017 I was awarded a Microsoft MVP award. You can find my profile here. I am very happy to say that I was re-awarded the MVP award on the 1st July 2018.
I have profiles scattered around the web at the following sites:
