After working as a software developer and contractor for over 14 years for a whole bunch of companies including CSC, Proquest, SPSS and AT&T in the UK and Netherlands, I decided to work full-time as a private software trainer. I moved to the beautiful city of Budapest, where I turned Cave of Programming from just a bunch of articles into what you see today. After spending a year in Berlin, I moved back to my roots and I now live in Derby, UK.
