Insights from our very own Umbrao Master: Gil


Before we get started here are some Fun Facts about our Umbraco Master Gil…

What is your background in website development?

I started out in website development more years ago than I care to remember before opting to focus on back end database development, with Umbraco in particular as a focus. 

Why backend website development?

I’ve been lucky enough to find work that I enjoy and is a challenge, it’s stopped me from being bored and has forced me to push myself to learn new things. 

What is it like being on the Codeminers team?

It’s brilliant. The projects that we undertake here can be quite complex, so we need to ensure that the members of our team are up to the task.
