David Hay in MexicoWho you are?

David Hay, a consultant at Microsoft.  I starting writing code (Fortran) in 1974, and have been making a living developing software and IT solutions since 1983.

What makes you “tick”?

Helping people and making a difference.  At work that can mean implementing great solutions that help others achieve their goals.  Outside of work I like to spend time volunteering with organisations that help others, from helping at the local food kitchen, through to working with aid organisations in developing countries.

I also love camping with my family and I enjoy photography.

Where you live?

Canberra, Australia

Where do you call home?

Anywhere in Australia

Why are you active in the Rangers program?

For the opportunity to be a part of the community that uses the best development tools in the solar system.

What is the best Rangers project you worked on and why?

I have only just joined the Rangers so have not worked on a project yet.
