OpenEdge Progress Developer

Age : 47

Just a little bit about me…

I am Senior Developer with Pace IT (UK) having previously worked with Advanced on Progress-OpenEdge products like OpenPeople & OpenAccounts starting way back in 1995.

With 26 years development experience I’ve been involved with heap of scenarios in the software development life cycle.  From System Design through to Customer Support, Training and everything in-between.  And in this industry, you can’t help always learning something new.

I enjoy making things work.  Debugging and problem solving are probably my favourite bits to work on, and I also love meeting new folks and getting to know their issues so to help them. 

I’m pretty comfortable with both in-house team communication and front line customer facing support.

  • Progress OpenEdge V6-11
