Ian is a self-employed independent software developer. He started developing in 1978 using machine language. An expert with Delphi, FireMonkey, FireDAC, and more. He uses Delphi because it’s a guaranteed sure-fire development you can rely on. He finds it exciting to see everything in one place with Multi-device preview. And loves the advent of WSL on Linux compatibility.
One of his interesting projects was the Clock system used by 1.5 million people in the UK. They clock in or out for work everyday using fingerprint scanners, hand scanners, facial recognition and proximity tag units. He wrote everything from the hardware controllers right up to reporting software, cloud servers and documentation. They’ve just expanded to the US. It’s kind of cool to see many people getting their payroll done and overtime paid with help from code he wrote.
Alan Fletcher is a Software Developer with over 35 years of experience in the area. 20 of those years were mostly spent in Delphi/ Pascal – his language of choice.Alan has been involved (and fascinated) with computers since 48K of RAM was a lot and the source code for the OS was provided as part of the computer documentation. Alan also developed in Assembler, C, C++, PHP, and other languages. Alan worked in software development in Brazil, Canada, Austria, France and the United States.
Currently Alan calls Brookings home where he works for WideOrbit. When Alan is not at the computer he loves spending time with his family, cycling, cooking, teaching spin classes and taking pictures.
