Background

Bruce has been programming in ASP and MS SQL since 1997. The first project he undertook was a web based mapping system that allowed users to map their holiday. The system calculated optimum routes through popular tourist destinations. Bruce was the chief architect and programmer for this system.

In 2000, Bruce developed a company intranet for a private company of 120 employees. The web based application allowed employees to share documents and managed human resource functions like lodging and processing staff holiday applications. It was also developed to allow staff to input staff satisfaction surveys via their terminals and the system compiled data into report format for management to review. The statistical application was developed in MS SQL.

In 2002, Bruce developed a content management system for an organic food co-operative. This content management system allowed members of the co-operative to register and post information on the co-operative’s website. The website and mailing list became central to the operations of the co-operative and a website forum was also developed by Bruce to allow co-operative members to communicate and discuss issues relating to the running of the co-operative. The website had both public and private (members only) web pages.

In 2003, this content management system was further developed and refined. Bruce also worked as a consultant and assisted in the integration of government job seek databases with a web based system. He was able to help resolve data integration problems and assist the programmers that were contracted to develop the web based system.

In 2004, Bruce developed an extranet for Oxfam Community Aid Abroad, a multinational non for profit organization. The web based system integrated forums, calendar, document sharing and mailing lists and allowed staff in multiple locations to co-ordinate collaboratively. Bruce also worked as a tutor and consultant on a number of third year university website design projects. These projects varied from e-commerce websites to database websites that collected and reported upon information entered.

Bruce and Jeanee Andrewartha received government funding to start their business, Passion Computing. The business has been trading for 6 years and has had clients as diverse as IBM business consultants, marketing companies and consultants, colleges, online entrepreneurs, online traders, business professionals, non for profit community organizations, small businesses, and authors. Passion Computing has worked for companies and individuals in the US, Europe and Australia. Its expertise has enabled it to prosper in a market that is highly competitive and in an industry where over 80% of IT projects fail to achieve project goals. Our consultancy and programming background ensure that project goals are met, if not exceeded. We have developed software in both open source software and ASP, ASP.net and MS SQL. Bruce is also proficient in creating creative designs that are compliant to w3.org standards, and numerous other computer languages and programs, including Java script, Flash, HTML, PHP, My SQL, and Passion Computing is passionate about the internet and website usability.

In the ten years that Passion Computing has been trading, it has worked on a diverse range of projects from online dating websites, directory websites with full text searching capabilities, bespoke corporate CMS systems, facebook applications, membership websites, photography websites, small business websites for publishers, retailers, wholesalers, and numerous HTML websites that required search engine optimisation and flash programming. Very few website development companies have our breadth of experience or passion for the internet.
