I am a freelance software architect and photographer. I have worked in the software business all of my life with clients from around the world and across multiple sectors. During this time I have built up a wealth of experience in the development and application of software to solving business problems.
My passion now, reflected in where I have started taking this blog since mid-2019, is the impact of technology on our everyday lives and how it affects us all, for better or worse. I write about the issues facing the tech industry, especially with respect to artificial intelligence, privacy and the impact of the internet and social media. Given my background I look at this through the lens of architecture, strategy and design and the importance of these in building workable and human focused IT solutions.
I now only program as a hobby and as a way of understanding and staying ahead of the technology but I am available for delivering talks on the above topics, Please contact me if you’d like me to come and talk to your organisation.
I am co-author, with Peter Eeles, of the book The Process of Software Architecting.
My other passion is photography which you can find on my other blog at petercrippsphotography.co.uk.
