Computing, maths and art in education


Hi, I’m Martin

I am a software developer, currently working on two educational sites, and, aimed at teaching computing and maths for UK GCSE (students aged 14-16). I also occasionally post to this blog.

I first became interested in computing while I was at school in the late 70s. My first computer was a little 8-bit microprocessor board I built from a kit, and the school computing club also had a teletype terminal connected to the mainframe at Sheffield University.

Over the past 30-odd years as a professional developer, I have been lucky enough to work on many interesting projects relating to embedded systems, machine control, compression and encoding algorithms, computer graphics and imaging, and maths visualisation, as well as developing a few websites along the way.

I hope you find my websites useful. Follow me on twitter @MartinMcBride64 if you would like to be updated when new articles appear.
