Martin S Longstaff BSc(Hons) DipComp


My ideal work is varied and challenging. I like the opportunities to employ and develop my skills in all aspects of Internet software design, development and implementation.


I have been creating, developing and maintaining database driven Websites for over twenty years. This has given me a very strong expertise in PHP, SQL, Javascript and HTML. I also have a wide experience of working in computing, I'm proficient in 'OO' development and MVC frameworks. I have built real time, distributed management systems in C++, and several PC games and some very successful Amiga games back in the 90's.

I consider myself amiable, imaginative but practical with good social and communications skills. Remote learning tested my self-discipline, time management and organisation skills, but more importantly my dedication to learning, in running a high-pressured business alongside a demanding academic timetable.


I am accomplished musician, pianist and guitarist and have played in many bands over the years. I'm also a skilled artist and photographer
