John Ince
I'm a CTO, software architect, designer and technical programmer with 35 years experience at the leading edge of software development. My life's work has culminated in the invention of cloud hosted, native code, live web applications at Project Peach. I've designed a single technology framework for the creation and support of real-time websites, applications, mobile apps and IoT systems..

Before Project Peach I've worked with some of the world's largest companies like IBM, Unilever, Rapiscan. I've also worked at the tiniest startups. I understand leading edge web technologies like HTML5, CSS3, websockets layered over my background of c/c++ programming language. I make great architectural and design decisions because I understand the underlying source code.

I can make a real difference to your next generation IT project.
Project Peach Ltd
CTO. (October 2011 - Present)
York, UK

About Me:
I am the founder and visionary who invented live web applications. I designed and also helped code our real-time web framework from ground zero upwards. I own and drive our technology direction using agile processes.

Project Peach live web applications use advanced technologies like HTML5, CSS3, Websockets & JavaScript for our browser UX. Our cloud hosted, native code, live web applications are built using portable c++. Powerful web applications without the browser hosting constraints.

Project Peach is a 7 year software project with a £400k development budget. The concept is to take all our knowledge as developers and 'FIX' the problems we've encountered in software development over the last 35 years. We've coded a unified development framework that's solves everything from remote collaborative working, true browser multi-user and one solution for apps of all types including websites. We created smart connections that push live changes in realtime to live connected clients. Our mission is to change the way the world codes their apps.
