Andrew finsihed his internship at the IGA in March 2008 and went to work for ROK Media (www.rokent.com) as a PHP/MySQL developer.
Speaking about his first few months in his new role he said;
"So far I've been working on websites which are for internal reporting (statistics etc), user management systems, and a quiz application which runs on Facebook. It wouldn't have been possible for me to get this job without my experience in the IGA, since this is where I developed most of the skills I took to the new job."
