Sherringham

Bio

My name is Alastair David Sherringham.

I was born in Gibraltar and went to school in Suffolk and Northamptonshire before moving to Edinburgh and going to the Royal High School.

After leaving school, I went to Edinburgh University and studied Physics, getting a BSc (Hons) 1st Class degree. On graduation, I moved to London to do a Masters degree in Computing (Conversion) at Imperial College. From here I could no longer avoid work.

I have worked at the following companies and held a variety of roles. These include computer programming, technical support, systems and network administration, web development and writing software manuals (end user as well as technical and reference material).

  • Dunnhumby
  • Parallax Graphics
    Purchased by Avid 1995
  • Avid
  • Nucoda
    Purchased by Digital Vision 2005
  • Digital Vision
    I left Digital Vision in August 2019, leaving London and moving to Edinburgh. Just in time for the Covid pandemic.

My work at Digital Vision included release and development engineering, software and systems documentation, license administration and development, intranet development and maintenance, systems and network administration. A varied mix over the years.

I like Linux, Modern Perl, Python, Vim, Mozilla, FOSS and the World Wide Web.

Apart from all the technical stuff, I love reading, art, history and science. I also paint, mostly in oils.
