I am your host, Mel Padden. An Irish expat living in beautiful Zurich, Switzerland, plying my trade as a provider of IT consultancy services to the thriving Swiss Financial Services industry. I’m especially interested in dynamic and functional languages and how they’re going to affect this area of IT over the next few years, WPF for the power it hands you as a developer of UI-intensive applications, and system integration concerns in general.
My favoured recreational pursuits include, reading, running and rocking out to QOTSA on Saturday mornings. Anything beginning with “R”, really. And taking in as much as I can of the exquisite Swiss countryside on my trusty Giant road bike.
