Hi. My name is Stephen Russell, and I'm an advanced technical trainer in Microsoft and Java development technologies, amongst other topics.
Since I parted company with academia in 1994, I have been involved in a diverse range of training and consultancy projects in the IT industry. These have involved presenting Microsoft, Unix and Java systems and developer courses, as well as consulting, performing performance and security reviews, and course development.
In recent years, I have specialised in .NET, Azure, and BizTalk development courses, though I enjoy teaching Java, Python, and Unix/Linux as the opportunities arise. I have also been involved in presenting customised on-site training courses and mentoring roles for a diverse range of corporate clients. And I'm always interested in requests for topics that no one else teaches.
If you're interested in finding out more about me, or engaging my services, please play with the menus up the top, or you can just contact me. You can also visit my LinkedIn page.
Thought for the day
"Teaching is the only major occupation of man for which we have not yet developed tools that make an average person capable of competence and performance. In teaching we rely on the 'naturals,' the ones who somehow know how to teach."
