Peter has a Cambridge Engineering Degree and many years of technical experience in both a domestic and commercial environment. He received an award for “Top Linux Expert” in 2006 (username pjedmond), and now works as an independent consultant. Whilst highly technical, Peter has a strong teaching background having qualified as an physical training instructor, and a UKCC Level 2 Judo Coach. He is also a STEM Ambassador, and has been involved in teaching electronics and coding to children as young as 7.
In the UK we have been slow to appreciate the importance of computing and electronics and opportunities to get a experience with these topics when young are few. Peter is keen to make sure that those opportunities are there for those that are interested.
Peter primarily works with Free and Open Source software ensuring that people he teaches can carry on learning on their home systems in their own time.
