About Me

About Me (Professional)

Hi, everyone.  My name is Andrew Norman, and this is my technical blog. I am a software developer that is currently working freelance. (See the “Services” section below if you’re interested in hiring me for a job.)

I’ve been in the software development world full-time since September 2015, coming from a mathematics background with a Bachelor’s in Mathematics and a Master’s in Applied Mathematics. I developed an interest in software development shortly after leaving academia and things have snowballed from there. I have experience in PHP, Node.js, VB.Net, C#, SQL, JavaScript, etc.

You can see my public résumé here: pdf, html.

Furthermore, you can see my GitHub page here for examples of my work or look at the My Projects page.

Services

If you have a project that needs to get done and you’re wondering if I would be interested in working on it, you can email me at anorman728@gmail.com. Please make the subject line “Software Development” so I know it’s not spam!

If I am able to work on the project, I’ll send you my phone number so we can talk, but the details of the project (called “specs,” short for “specifications”) will need to be in an email in written form. (That way there’s less room for misinterpretation, and the specs can be referred to at any time after-the-fact.)

YouTube Video Series Requests

One thing that I’ve done for years, even before I did anything in software, is make YouTube tutorial videos, and, if I do say so myself, I think I’m pretty good at it. If you have an idea for a YouTube tutorial series, let me know, and I’ll see if it’s feasible. You can email me (make sure the subject line is “YouTube series” so I don’t think it’s spam) or Tweet at me. It’s very possible that I may end up writing some BASH or PowerShell scripts to help, like I did for the OpenVPN videos.

I can’t guarantee that I’ll agree that a YouTube video series needs to be made, but, if I do, I’m certainly not going to charge you money for it (or even take any personal information from you), because by letting me know you’ll be helping me more than I’ll be helping you.
