Alan Chandler is Hartley Consultants principal resource. He wrote his first program in the assembler language for a Honeywell mini computer in 1968 as a hobby and shortly afterwards took his first paid employment as a programmer writing software in the Algol programming language. During the 1970's, in a full time career in programming (with Logica) he continued writing Assembly Language software, primarily Real Timesoftware in PDP 11 Assembler Language(Macro 11). He also started working with Databases, including designing databases from scratch (since it was before the development of database packages such as Oracle). He also occassionally used Pascal and Fortran. As he moved into the 1980's, he implemented Version Control and became involved in using Unix as a software development environment. C and, towards the end of the decade,C++, became the languages of choice for most development although occassional work using Visual Basic and Microsoft Access added to his skills.

Many of Alan's early software development projects was as a team member, but he quickly rose to lead those teams, and eventually ran a full software development department of 70 people,with financial resposibility for its profitability. In the Business Analysis and Business Development phases of his career, co-ordinating with international teams - but with a part time role, it was necessary for him to quickly establish the trust of the team members before leading them into a new direction.
One approach we can take is for Alan to join your existing team - as a team player, providing his considerable experience and skill to a task managed by you. But just as possible is for Hartley Consultants to take a complete task, provide an estimate for costs to complete that task, and to manage it to deliver the finished result to you to fit in with your project plans
