Paul is a Rails developer, with particular specialities in database performance and interesting algorithms. He enjoys trying to reduce complex problems to simple solutions, and building useful systems. Before joining Transcendit in 2010, he spent 10 years as a university lecturer, got a Ph.D. in “something artificial intelligence-y”, and has been coding since the early 80s. The real world beckoned after he taught an MSc course on Rails and rather enjoyed it.
He says he has three kids instead of spare time: all boys with no respect for remote controls. Paul has recently started playing Golf and can now hit a ball straight more often than not. He is also Transcendit's in-house motorbike mechanic, handy for when colleagues forget to oil their chain or neglect their brakes.
