Not an IT professional as such but with a long pedigree of being the goto IT guy without an IT role or qualification for well into my second decade now.
I grew up copying games from Computer and Video Games mag onto my ZX Spectrum with my dad reading out the code to me.
Professionally Ive been in Advice and Guidence and had a sideline in it fixing p3oples pcs and sorting out websites made by people whoshouldnt be making websites.
Yes I taught my self music. I can circular breathe and also juggle, but not at the same time.
I rather think I need to learn PHP.Sorry about the spelling, grammar and punctuation I have a Galaxy Tab on loan from work and its keyboard input leaves a lot to be desired.
