He was instrumental in the upgrade of the existing product line from VB3 to VB6 and also the migration from Access to SQL Server. Many of the products he worked on are still in production and on sale today.
David later moved on to Lifetime Financial Management where he built the first version of their multi-site back office administration tool, that would after many iterations evolve to become the 360 Lifecycle product suite.
David is also a keen cyclist and spends many hours on a weekend speeding through the roads of Leicestershire, Rutland and Warwickshire annoying the locals by being middle-aged and clad in Lycra. Of all of his achievements, he is especially proud of his platinum discount on Wiggle.

Mark has been professionally working as a Developer since he was 21 and has worked on a variety of projects, for small local businesses to large multi-national organisations.
