About me

Photo of PeterMy name’s Peter Bloomfield and this is my CV/resume and portfolio website.

I’m currently a Senior Software Engineer at ADI (Advanced Digital Innovation) in the UK, working mainly on server-side programming for the health team. On a day-to-day basis, most of my work involves PHP and JavaScript, running in Docker containers.

Previously, I was the Senior Software Engineer at Vertual Ltd. I was helping develop virtual reality training and visualisation software for radiotherapy cancer treatment. Most of my work involved C++ programming which I thoroughly enjoyed. It also involved 3d graphics and maths, as well as some embedded programming, large quantities of patient data, and much more.

  • C/C++
  • PHP + Laravel, Composer
  • JavaScript + Node, npm, Express, React
  • Docker
  • SQL (MySQL / MariaDB)

Hobbies & interests

Aside from programming various projects in my free time, my interests include reading, making music, playing games (computer or table-top), tinkering with electronics, karate, and even some arts and crafts. In addition to all that, I’m also writing up a doctoral thesis in computing (educational technology and HCI) at the University of the West of Scotland.
