My first foray into software came with a Dragon 32 computer in the early 1980s. Having a computer with a less than popular OS meant adapting programmes from a ZX Spectrum magazine and lengthy debugging sessions! After diversions into a number of non-tech fields, I returned to the fold and now have two decades experience in the IT industry. I’ve worked in both contract and permanent roles in Europe and Africa ranging in scale from multinationals, to being the first tester in the door at small companies. I’m currently a Test Manager in the BBC, testing outsourced IT projects.
