I began my career as a computer operator in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada after graduating from college. After 1 year of operating an IBM mainframe and running batch jobs / performing tape backups in a 1980’s data center, I was promoted to programmer. I’ve been writing code ever since and I’ve seen a lot of “stuff” — believe me! I’ve held many IT positions over the years including: Computer Operator, Junior programmer, Systems Analyst, Senior Systems Analyst, Application Engineer, Senior Application Engineer and IT Manager
I have probably written several millions of lines of code in my lifetime and mentored dozens of IT trainees & many Engineers / Accountants / Big Corporate staff. My specialty is in PHP / MySQL and most specially, WordPress.
