Meet Matt Clarke
From a childhood love of programming his ZX spectrum Matt went on to graduate from Kent University with honours in a Computer Science degree.
Starting as a junior programmer in the early 90s, his first project threw him straight in at the deep end creating a forerunner language to Visual Basic. Matt went on to develop and manage a vast and exciting variety of projects from an early online banking system to a city centre CCTV facial recognition system tested on TV by John Cleese in drag!
Matt’s strengths lie in his deep thinking analysis and passion for good system design – so often critical for the future changes the customers don’t yet realise they want.
Now as MD, Matt is able to bring all his skills and experience to direct projects and to provide customers with the reassurance that he’s ‘been there and done it all’.
Meet Richard Turner
Richard’s original intention was to be an Electronics Engineer – attracted by its social status and glamorous lifestyle! This all went by the wayside when he discovered computers and The Internet. Post-University he joined a small exciting development house in the beautiful Hampshire countryside thus depriving the UK of its greatest modern-era Prime Minister.
Although not a natural coder he quickly established himself as a practical and useful type, able to support the more fragile and otherworldly programmers acting as both a shield and a translator to customers.
Richard’s core strengths are rooted in over 15 years of designing, building, supporting and learning with a strong grounding in all things related to Internet Security. An early evangelist of Linux and Open Source, he prefers CentOS, Nginx and the simple beauty of the command line.
Outside work, Richard loves photography, real ale and the Great British Bake Off.
Meet Mike Edwards
It was while at college that Mike discovered computers and just how much fun programming can be. This quickly led to a career in computing which started on the Monday after leaving college.
Mike’s first challenge as a trainee programmer was to learn the C programming language. This was a challenge that was attacked with enthusiasm and determination. In this ever changing industry learning new skills has been a constant feature that Mike has enjoyed. Most recently development in Android has been the latest technology to be tackled.
The grounding that Mike has received in the last 20 years helps him in his current role that is primarily geared to the successful delivey of customer projects.
In his spare time Mike likes nothing more than a session with a rod and line.
