Peter "SaberUK" Powell

Malvern, Worcestershire, UK (relocation possible)

» Summary

I am a software developer that primarily specialises in development for desktop and server platforms using the C# and C++ programming languages.

I have been working on open source software for 11 years. Currently most of my open source development time is spent working on InspIRCd. InspIRCd is a modular C++ implementation of the Internet Relay Chat protocol which is used on over 1600+ servers. I also contribute to the IRCv3 Working Group as part of my work on InspIRCd and have authored several IRCv3 specifications.

I am in the process of obtaining a software development honours degree from The Open University. I am expected to finish this degree in June 2018 but due to the remote nature of my study I am available for hire before this date.
