Barry Tighe

Me, Myself and Technology

Summary

I have had a passion for IT since I was 14 and was bought my first computer (the TI 99/4A), I started developing in BASIC and was completely hooked.

Over time my focus shifted from general programming to databases and web development.

I enjoy playing with Visual Basic and will just create things for the sake of doing it.

My favourite languages are Javascript, PHP, DHTML and HTML.

Written testimonial:
Barry is great to work with. We haven't completed the work yet but it is just getting content together and finalising the site. Everything I have asked has been answered in a way I understand.

Highly recommended

Posted by Helen Beattie (Owner), Cafe Milly

Written testimonial:
It has been a pleasure working with Barry, I thought setting up the website would be a lengthy process but Barry showed me what was happening every step of the way.

Costs were a lot lower than I expected and he offered to run a facebook page alongside the website.

I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to be involved with every step, as a complete novice I was put at ease and felt included in every way.
