Hello from the Northwest of England.

Posted 04 October 2012 - 03:53 PM

Hello everyone, I was looking for a community of fellow programmers/nerds/geeks/vikings to simply surround myself with so I can have a range of people to chat to about subjects I'm interested in.

I'm also keen to make use of the support offered, and perhaps if I'm able, to use some of my grey matter to provide some solutions eventually.

I'm a final year student studying Software Engineering.
