My name is Jamie Balfour. This website is all about me.

I am a computer scientist, web developer, software developer, computer language developer and future teacher. I keep my professional stuff separate from my personal stuff and so if you are in need of a website, visit my business site at Jambour Digital.

My main interests relate to computing and computer science, particularly web development. This website serves as my own personal webpages as well as a place where I write my own articles, reviews and tutorials. I'm also really interested in SIP and VoIP phones and have lots of experience setting these up.


In a nutshell

Born in Scotland and given a computer at age 7 by my parents, I became really interested in computers and technology by the time I was finishing primary school.

In 2010 I decided to get myself a personal website. In 2013 and now 2017 I rebuilt the site and that's what you are visiting right now. This website is entirely my own work (apart from jQuery): I wrote the HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP and designed the databases that power this site from nothing.

My main interests are in web development, digital design, computer language design, VoIP phones, software development and in education with computer science.

I went on to study computer science at university in 2012 and obtained a first class degree (you can read my dissertation here). In 2016, I graduated with a First Class Honours degree in Computer Science.

I am currently a freelance web developer and work as the head of development and computer consultancy for Jambour Digital.
