About

My name is Adrian Smith and I’m a software engineer living in Dublin, Ireland.

You can contact me via email or to see what I’m up to take a look on GitHub, Bitbucket, LinkedIn Ohloh or Delicious.

I started programming BASIC on the C64 back when the Terminator 2 pack was the must have christmas present and Zzap! 64 was the magazine of the day. After the C64 I moved on to the Amiga 600 and AMOS Basic. From there it was on to college where I used COBOL, C, Foxpro (the old DOS version), RPG and a bit of Assembler. For the past few years Python, Java & Javascript have been my primary languages.

My claim to fame is the password manager Universal Password Manager which I developed a few years ago.

Aside from technology I practice taekwondo and aspire to playing the guitar.
