I’m Samuel Penn, a software development manager currently living in Hampshire, England, and currently working at Perforce Software. Previously I’ve been a Java/C developer and document management consultant working for a number of companies since the mid nineties. Prior to that I studied Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence at Edinburgh University, and initially learned to program on a BBC Micro using Basic and assembler (6502 and later ARM).

My current hobbies include gaming (both computer games, but also tabletop roleplaying games, wargames and boardgames), reading, managing Linux servers and websites and programming overly complicated simulations.
