Ian Norton, co-Leader of the North West England Perl Mongers group, UKUUG Board member, Perl Speaker, event speaker, community advocate, Ironman Team Lead, project participant and event organiser, will officially join the Lancaster Shadowcat team on 6th August 2012.
Ian has been an outside developer, and part-time contract worker, at Shadowcat for a number of years, helping us out on projects that suited his specific talents. Finally we at Shadowcat were able to persuade Ian to come and join us full time and to work from the Shadowcat Offices in Lancaster.
Ian is an experienced developer with a wealth of experience under his belt in network and database management. He will be bringing a number of skills to the Shadowcat team including an affinity for RT, experience in training, presentation and the obvious computer literacy skills in Perl and Unix environments.
We are hoping that Ian's contribution to the Shadowcat team will be matched with further involvement in the communtiy of which he is a rising star and committed participant. We are also hoping that for Ian it is a journey of wonder and personal achievement (along with a joyous jog on the Shadowcat treadmill).
