About Greg Dove
Greg Dove is Managing Director of Dove Software Development Ltd, his company based in Auckland, New Zealand, where he lives with his family. A New Zealander, Greg and his family have also lived in Australia and France before returning to New Zealand to settle.
Greg is a consultant programmer, who historically specialised in Adobe® Flash® platform-related technologies, but has built solid experience with other related technologies over more than a decade. He has extensive experience with Flex and Adobe Air, and is also competent with ReactJS/React Native, Haxe (which supports a wide range of compilation targets and platforms) and Apache Royale. Aside from regular projects, his skillset and experience means that he is also particularly well-placed to support clients who are migrating away from legacy Flash player based web applications.
He provides services for local NZ-based and international (mostly US-based) clients ranging from short-term (sometimes even overnight) troubleshooting to full time front-end development work under contract, either as sole developer, or part of a larger team.
Greg has an active interest in open source development, when time permits. He was one of the core developers in the team behind the original declarative graphics framework for Flex 3, Degrafa. In recent years he has contributed to the Apache based successor for Flex, Apache Royale (formerly Apache FlexJS).
Greg has a balance of solid business experience and information technology skills. He switched careers to focus on offering remote development services in 2006. Prior to that, he worked in the pharmaceutical industry for 13 years in sales, marketing and business development roles, including 4 years as an e-Business manager in Australia. At that time his job included overseeing the procurement of the type of services he now provides. He continually strives to provide the type and level of service as a supplier/vendor that he sought and expected as a former client.
