I also own and run a small software development company, called Viva IT. Based in the heart of the UK (that's Leicester, by the way), we specialise in utilising technology to help businesses improve their efficiency. Most of the time, this invovles creating highly specialised backend systems (usually built in Symfony) to compliment and aid their business processes. Which is where my real passion lies - building high quality software that helps people do their jobs better.
