Simon Painter


 Simon has been working as a software developer since 2007 in various industries around the UK including government, retail and manufacturing. In fact though, he's been hacking around with computer code since he was old enough to read his Dad's copy of the ZX Spectrum BASIC coders manual.

 Simon is also a Microsoft MVP and public speaker, who has appeared at user groups and IT conferences around the world to talk about .NET development techniques.

 He lives in a small town in Shropshire, UK with his wife and children.
