Introduction

Jacob Clark AMBCS Dip HNDip

I'm a computer scientist with a particular interest in software development, artificial intelligence, computer graphics, data mining, embedded systems and microcontroller/electrical engineering.

I have several years experience within the software and web development industry, working with large national and international clients developing bespoke business critical applications, those clients included: Liverpool John Lennon Airport, Persil, McBride Group, Advanced Foster Group, Wigan & Leigh College, Barton Park and Just 4 Rugby.

I am currently employed by CSL Sofas as a Software Developer working on internal business applications. 

Whilst working within the industry I have achieved both a National Diploma (Dip) and Higher National Diploma (HND) in Computing, Information Systems and Software Development. I am currently studying a BSc in computer science at The University of Salford. 

I'm passionate about education and inspiring younger generations into computer science and electrical engineering, I often give up my spare time to mentor, teach, host workshops and educational events to achieve this. 

I'm a committee member of the British Computer Society's Manchester Branch, a STEM Ambassador and supporter of the Free Software Foundation and the Open Source Initiative.

I'm competent in several programming languages, at both high level and low level machine development, these languages include: Assembly (NASM), C (GCC), Objective-C, Python, PHP, Pascal, JavaScript and Ruby.
