Python Web developer. Employed full time, this site is just a little bit about me.
Technologies I use (daily).

Behind the Solent Wholesale website is a custom CMS and product managaement system, written entirely from scartch to tailor the unique application entirely to Solent Wholesales needs.
The site was built to run perfectly on desktop, tablet, mobile and phones.
Using SQLAlchemy allows the use of multiple databases, linking their customer facing site, with their internal Sage platform.
Using pyramid allowed us to create a dynamic site with every feature that was needed, wihout to much complexity.
Solent love their site, mainly because it offers a great knowledge base for their customers, making them stand out from their competitors.
The computer industry is the only industry that is more fashion-driven than women's fashion.
