Richard Garner

United Kingdom
I am a developer / architect, and have been working on the Microsoft stack for over 20 years. I co-founded and organise DotNetNorth - a user community in Manchester. Currently I work as a technical consultant.


After a degree in Physics and a few years working in theatre and radio, I ended up in my first IT job, building applications for a food factory using Access. Jobs in finance, banking and retail followed before I joined a consultancy, where I spent over a decade designing, coding and team leading on several projects in pharmaceuticals, central government, nuclear and healthcare settings. 
In 2013, I co-founded a user group in Manchester which has now grown to be one of the largest technology meetups in the UK.
