Robin is a software developer/technical architect working for a supply chain management software company in the UK.
He has been writing software since the 1980s, professionally from the mid-90s. Highlights of his work include websites, APIs, mobile applications, distributed systems and infrastructure. Low points include WebForms and VB6.
His fascination with security allows him to create apps and systems that resist the bad guys. He’s big on DevOps, Continuous Deployment and Continuous Improvement.
When not at a computer, he tries to be a bit more active. He’d love to ski and snowboard all year round but so far he’s restricted that to winter in the northern hemisphere. He also cycles around the roads and in the hills. That is, when his fantastic family aren't keeping him busy.
