Statement Of Neutrality, Alignment And Interests

I work as the senior manager of a software development team (.NET, SQL, etc) for a UK based Business Services Company; this website is separated from my professional activities. Should any article relate to the business of a firm I am directly attached to it is not to be taken as their word or opinion; everything I write is my opinion and mine only (unless otherwise marked on the article). Should I write an article on behalf of another firm it will be listed here for the purposes of disclosure:

Commercial Interests

I do not directly hold commercial interest in any technology firm (other than by my employment as a software developer, but I do not write directly about my firm unless obviously indicated). I do not directly hold any stocks or shares in a technology firm (I may via my pension fund, but that is not under my control). In the event that I am provided with a product or service to write about this will be clearly indicated in the article.

Relationship to Employer

My personal activities; be they blogs, articles, social media posts, or otherwise are entirely my own. No posts/etc are approved by my employer (unless clearly marked as such), past or present. All statements and views expressed are my own.
