Ivan Prosper

I.T. Professional

I am an IT professional with over 15 years of experience in enterprise computing environments, covering a range of local and multi-national organisations in Manufacturing, Health, Finance and the public sector.

I develop multi-platform Mobile Applications using Cordova to package and deploy apps on the App Store and Google Play.

My coding passion is javascript and the future of javascript is Meteor and Angular. I am a firm believer that Meteor, coupled with Angular, will become the standard choice for product development in future and as such I actively participate in the Melbourne Meteor community.

I am also a Technical Analyst, delivering capacity management services to multiple Managed Services clients.

I am a keen Melbourne Rebels fan, I prefer test cricket to limited overs/T20 and I take photos with cameras that use one sheet of film at a time, but I am definitely not a technological dinosaur!
