On the 12th November 2009 our very own Josh Twist was awarded System Developer of the Year in the British Computer Society (BCS) and Computing magazine’s annual UK IT Industries awards. He fought his way past eight other finalists all of whom are professionals leading the way in the UK IT industry.
David Clarke, Chief Executive Officer of BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, said: “This year’s Awards have been exceptional. I was delighted to take part in the judging day and witness firsthand the quality of the winners and medallists. To qualify as a finalist is terrific, to win is an absolutely fantastic achievement, and I offer my heartfelt congratulations to all those took part. They not only provide examples of best practice but also demonstrate how IT is enabling today’s information society from entertainment to healthcare, manufacturing to retail.”
Robin Booth, Publishing Director of Computing comments: “Computing is very proud to join forces with BCS to create such prestigious awards and celebrate UK innovation and best practice. Today IT drives business and this year’s deserving winners signify the importance and value that technology brings to business, society and the economy.”
The UK IT Industry Awards see a new venture between BCS and Computing, merging the BCS IT Industry Awards and the Computing Awards for Excellence to create one platform for the entire profession to celebrate best practice, innovation and excellence.
Congratulations Josh and thank you for all of your hard work from all the team.
