Hi, I’m Jim Mc̮̑̑̑͒G.
I’m a UK based freelance software developer using largely Microsoft technologies. I’ve been doing this since the late ‘90s. I generally gravitate around cloud-based solutions using C#, .NET Core and Azure. Today, that means I get super excited by highly scalable serverless technologies. Most recently, I’ve been immersing myself in Unity and the amazing tech that is Augmented Reality.
Silicon Orchid is not a company - it’s a personal project that I began in 2019. My goal is to engage with the development community and to reach out and help other developers, especially those new to the industry.
I have often been reliant upon the many bloggers and authors to help me along the way. This blog-site is my opportunity to reciprocate, by sharing some of my own learnings.
I hope that readers coming to this site find something that is useful and I wish you well on your own coding journey!
