About the Author

Matthew Knott has been writing code for as long as he can remember; from marveling at moving pixels on a BBC Micro to writing ridiculous text adventures for his Mother on an overheating ZX Spectrum 48k. Matthew has been a professional software developer for the last 12 years, the last 6 of which have been spent in the education sector where he has now entered the sometimes-scary world of management, although when they see the mess he made of the budget that won't last long. Matthew's work and hobby is basically the same thing, but when he's not working, he is loving life in a beautiful part of Wales with his Wife Lisa, and two kids Mikey and Charlotte.
