I have a Master's degree in Natural Science and a postgraduate diploma in Computer Science from Magdalene College, University of Cambridge.
For the Computer Science course, I had to write a dissertation based on a programming project, which was to write a computer program in C to translate occam2 source code into Modula-3. If you are interested in how compilers work, Modula-3, occam or threads then click here to see a HTML translation of it (download size is 155Kb). Definitely a useful course, which introduced me to the delights of C programming and the Internet.
From 2001 to 2002, I worked as a software developer for Amazon.com in Seattle.
I started off in the customer service applications group. After a few months I moved to the group responsible for the order-summary page, shopping cart and customer sign-in parts of the website.

Teenage Stabs At Programming:
I first started programming in 1985 on the ZX Spectrum using BASIC and Z80 assembly to produce some amateur quality games. One called Cosmos was distributed by Micronet 800 in 1986. I then moved on to the Sinclair QL. For all those who like a blast from the past, I have included two screen shots below from games I wrote for the Sinclair QL in 1989/90.
