|Martin after leaving Inmos in 1986 worked as a Unix Consultant in Leeds then back to the South West to work for AT&T (now Lucent) in Malmesbury in Unix Technical support. He then worked briefly as a Unix trainer for QA Training and for 3 years as an Open Systems consultant with ASE Consulting working with Unix/Windows/NT, Shell/C/C++/VB/Access, Oracle. In 1995 he decided to go solo and work as a consultant and trainer (mainly with QA Training) teaching Unix, C, C++ and Java. He had a brief try at working for Hitachi Data Systems in pre-sales in 1998 but it didn't work out and is back to training and consultancy working for himself adding OO Analysis/Design with UML to his skills. He now lives near Reading still together with Debbie Law.
