Kevin joined Digital’s UK Engineering team in July 1978, initially based in Fountain House, then Cheapside, then Acre Road, and finally graduated to the relative luxury of DEC Park II in the mid 1980s. He worked as a Software Engineer on products such as IAS, PEARL, OSI & DECnet Phase V, MAILbus & X.400. He finished his stint at DEC with a four-year relocation to the Telecomms Engineering group in Sophia Antipolis (a.k.a. Valbonne) where he worked on DECss7.
Since leaving Digital he has worked at Cisco Systems, as a Software Development Manager, but has mainly been employed as an independent consultant undertaking a variety of software and systems roles.
