|Biography:||I bought my first computer in 1999, banged out my first website a couple of weeks later.|
Learnt Dreamweaver 3.0, built my first ecomm site based on SAMS, Teach Yourself E-Commerce in 21 Days ... got hacked 6 months later! Moral - never copy code from a book. Upside - obsessed with security ever since, once bitten twice shy as they say.
Went to the first ever pubcon - in the Duke of Yorke pub in London, too nervous and intimidated, talked to exactly 2 people! Went to the first pubcon in the states, Irvine CA, managed to talk to 3 people there!! ... it was small steps in the early days :)
