Resume of Colin Morris

I strive to use my analytical, organisational and technical skills and experience to facilitate long lasting and enjoyable solutions for a variety of user desires. Since 2000 I have been involved primarily in the development of web applications, from the coal-face through to team management and solutions architecture/ design. In my current role as solution architect (integrator), that has branched out into holistics solutions sourcing - from custom development through sourcing existing solutions and reworking business processes to solve problems without technology changes - with the focus on working with the university's Research and Data management areas.

Publication: JavaScript: It's Just Not Validation (web article) [Details]

The term "JavaScript validation" is a somewhat misleading one for describing the process of assisting the users to fill forms out correctly. In fact, the back-end code performs the validation — JavaScript merely provides assistance. But when the validation and assistance don’t come from the same source, they do nothing but confuse people.

Publication: Code of the Coder [Details]

Code of the CoderCode of the Coder in physical book form

People claim to be Code Ninja or CSS Samurai, but how many of them follow a code? How many of them practice daily katas to keep in the best condition? This book foolishly applies the Seven Virtues of Bushido and the Eighteen Disciplines of Togekure-ryu ninjutsu to the coding arts, mistakenly finding some wisdom along the way.
