Now

I’m currently focusing on these things in my life:

I’m currently learning:

These are my priorities. Other than the exceptions below, I say no to everything else: recruitment/employment offers, business partnerships, equity/profit–share deals, marketing services, outsourcing my development needs, stuff being sold over the phone, and so on.

Business enquiries

Please visit plymouthsoftware.com for details of my professional services.

I schedule free 15-minute phone/video consultations to have a chat about a new business enquiries.

Book your call now

I don’t schedule new business meetings without first having this call and establishing that I can provide value to you and your organisation.

Help with your code

I genuinely enjoy helping and teaching other developers, and regularly receive questions for help on Android and Rails development.

However, I need to manage these as they increase in volume.

If you have a small development query, or need help with a particular piece of code, please post it on StackOverflow, and send me the link.

In this way, the whole community can benefit from - and contribute to - our learning. I usually set aside time each Friday to take a look at these.

For direct, one-on-one support for your code, or to discuss a larger development project, I offer software strategy consulting sessions through Plymouth Software, which can be booked and paid for online.

Please visit plymouthsoftware.com for more information.

Why?

Saying no to people does not come naturally to me. For years, though, I have spent most of my time saying yes to people’s requests, but got nothing done myself.

People often ask me to do other things. I sincerely wish them the best, and that I could help more, but I must say no, because I need to focus on these things in my life.
