Wayne has been a programming techie since he opened his first book on programming at the age of 13 while sitting in front of a ZX Spectrum 48K. Yes, that is 48K of RAM. No hard drive; and a cassette tape deck for storage. After completing his degree in computing in 1992 at a college in Cape Town, Wayne spent 10 years on working with the green screens of IBM DB2 mainframe development before moving onto SQL Server in 2000. He has published several articles on SQLServerCentral, and is looking to get back into writing and blogging. After working in the London corporate banking world for 7 years, Wayne started as a contractor at OW Labs in January 2015 and finally found his home. Two years later he became a permanent employee of Labs and was fulfilling his love of technical database programming with SQL Server, Python, Spark and Hadoop. Wayne is a Cub Scout Leader in Bromley, London.
