Hi, I am Jimmy MG Lim.
Over the decades, some are used to calling me “Guan”, “Jimmy” or “Gao1 Shou3” (nickname “the high hand”). The high hand was hilarious, as it started as an early habit of me calling everyone else that.
I work in the specialist domains of Information Management, Software Engineering, Graphics & Editorial and Education.
I am the author of “butlerfox“, “Jswissknife”, “up2 (usage provenance and prediction) framework” and “zenify series“. I have freelanced since 1997 on software development, worked at these inspiring companies ( Zencargo / QS / Grant Thornton / DEKO / Thoughtworks ) and have lectured at various institutions on software engineering.
You are most welcome to contact me either via email <email@example.com> or twitter @mirageglobe. Twitter is better :D.
More about Me
Back in 2010 and I was proud to help deliver one of the first Cloud and Green Computing modules in UK at University of Kent. Earlier in 2000, I started web development and focused on helping small business web engineering and design.
When not doing the above, I am into comedy, reading, mudding, home DIY, cooking, collecting card & board games, rare coins & stamps.
