Speaker: Melville Thomson
IT Evangelist, Microsoft
I started my IT career while in the services, as a Cobol programmer on Unix systems, nearly 20 years ago. I moved into designing and building database systems for the use in the Royal Engineers Depot where I worked, using various database products. After leaving the services I moved into training and consultancy. I am passionate about helping people to develop their full potential.
My home life is taken up by my family. I love to grow my own vegetables and roses. I also like to keep fit, I do a lot of problem solving while running. I enjoy various extreme sports and always like to try new ones.
