This website is a summary of what I'm doing. It was suggested by a friend that I make it on the grounds that an account of my achievements and activities would not be uninteresting.
I can be reached at [email protected] or you can follow me at @jonbaldie.
I am a semi-professional track and field athlete, specialising in the 100m event.
I am completely self-coached, although I would be ungrateful not to recognise the help provided by staff, fellow athletes, and friends.
I have years of experience working as a web developer primarily using the PHP programming language, and indirectly as a database administrator primarily working with MySQL databases.
I have worked on projects ranging from small brick-and-mortar business websites, to leading the development of highly complex production-level applications.
I am a contributor to the Laravel framework, which is used in millions of production applications around the web.
I also administer several Docker images which have grown rapidly in popularity due to their simplicity and stability.
I have created comprehensive study materials for the latter subject on my website Further Maths Tutor. I made the study materials in the interests of 'giving back' and owing to my belief that all maths should be free.
In my study materials I have made sure to include pages for the MEI specifications, because I admire the work done by the Further Mathematics Support Programme in creating opportunities for students to study A-level further maths. Indeed I personally benefitted from the programme when I did my A-levels.
