About Me, This Site and Contact

Welcome to Steve’s Smart Home Guide.

I’m Steve and the Web master of this site.

I have a broad technical background with over 17 years in the telecommunications Industry working in various capacities from engineering to management.

I moved from Telecoms to Computer networking in around 1995.

I spent over 10 years training and consulting mainly on networking, Microsoft Exchange and Active Directory.

I have a degree in electronics, and my professional accreditation’s include MCSE, MCT and Novel CNE.

I was also a chartered engineer(CEng) and MIEE (not renewed) .

I spent the early part of my career programming in both assembly language and C.

In the the early 80 I developed an International telephone traffic monitoring system (hardware and software (8080 assembly language)). This was in commercial use for several years

I also developed several billing systems. one was used for Inter Admin accounting of the telephone traffic and the other for ship to shore radio services.

Both systems were written in C and were in commercial use for several years.

Over the last 10 years I have become familiar with PHP, and have used it mainly on my own sites for modify themes.
