Dorian Sutton

DORIAN SUTTON, Web Developer

Dorian's interest in Computer Science was first sparked whilst he was studying History and Politics at the University of Huddersfield. Following an IT postgraduate qualification from Newcastle University, he embarked on a career in software development via a graduate training scheme at Frontec in Bristol. As a Software Developer there, he worked on stock and purchase software for IBM AS/400 systems.

With considerable software development experience under his belt, he became a Database Analyst and developer for MM Teleperformance, writing custom payment processing systems and administering Informix databases for big charity clients including Oxfam and the British Heart Foundation.

Taking time out for a few years to explore his creative side, he toured all over the UK and Europe as a professional musician, playing double bass in various bands and theatre and community music productions. Never far from a computer, he juggled his music commitments with developing websites, social media presence and mailing lists for his bands. Whilst touring, he continued to study for a Certificate in Web Applications Development with the Open University. Now back in a full-time database development role, he continues to spend his leisure time playing music around the Bristol circuit and entertaining his two young children.

Lewis White

LEWIS WHITE, Junior Programmer

Lewis was intrigued by websites and developing new user experiences from an early age. Whilst his peers would just be surfing the net, Lewis would look more closely at the forms and function that websites took and was quickly able to identify good design from bad. His curiosity in learning more about how websites were built and how online applications could perform tasks led him, post A levels, to study a BTEC in computing. The varied course modules gave him an insight into the many facets of web design and programming and he particularly enjoyed the games programming, JavaScript and PHP modules. His studies extended far beyond the classroom and his BTEC course has helped him to hone is web development skills, changing a hobby into a career.

Whilst Lewis is now in a full-time programming developer role, he has not relinquished his hobby and is currently developing a web-based multi-player game in Node.js and HTML5 as he recognises the importance of trying out new languages and relishes the challenge to create simple solutions for complicated tasks. Whilst programming and gaming take up a lot of his spare time, he also enjoys producing music and is the most environmentally friendly of us all, cycling to and from the Evergreen office every day!
