In 2013/14, Phil was seconded from his then-employment to a local police force to support the development of their cybercrime capability. The Royal Academy of Engineering paid for this secondment (thank you!). He is still involved in cybercrime work. As a result, Green Pike can provide you with cybercrime advice and investigations.
A toolkit written in 2013/14 is being re-written. This is specifically intended to support cybercrime investigators. If you would like to test it or have views about important features, please get in touch. Local law enforcement practitioners are particularly welcome.
Green Pike can carry out a range of software engineering tasks for you, including requirements analysis and specification through to implementation and ongoing maintenance.
If you have particular technology requirements, get in touch — computing is a huge area and there are many options.
A range of options for licensing are available: you might want your software to be freely available under the Gnu Public licence (GPL) or a BSD-style licence; instead you might require the software to be kept for you alone.
Green Pike strongly recommends Linux, particularly Debian and its derivatives for server use. Most development undertaken by Green Pike is on Debian platforms (Phil's laptop and desktop computers mostly run Debian).
Green Pike can assist you with
Operational research (OR) involves a range of applied mathematics techniques to help solve problems. Classical problems involve optimising delivery routes and logistics.
Green Pike can build mathematical models from very simple (perhaps as a Python script or spreadsheet) through to complex custom applications and simulations. Some simulations can involve random sampling (e.g., Monte Carlo methods)
Phil has spent much of his career using the LaTeX “document preparation system”. We can support you by producing entire documents (to PDF and other formats) as well as helping with your TeX and LaTeX problems.
Lilypond is a similar system, intended for producing music manuscripts. Green Pike can take your handwritten or similar manuscripts and produce a high-quality PDF.
Other packages and systems may also be supported, such as LibreOffice, groff, ….
Phil has over fifteen years of experience working in higher education. This has included teaching a wide range of courses to many students of varying abilities and backgrounds. We also have experience of vocational training in broader areas.
Green Pike is able to prepare custom courses for you on any area of our work.
With major experience of research, Green Pike can undertake research projects and literature surveys for you. Do you need to know if a particular technology is appropriate for your next product? Or perhaps you need a briefing about particular computing concepts.
