This post is part of an ongoing series of Rangers introductions. See An index to all Rangers covered on this blog for more details.
Who you are?
Tony Whitter, an independent software engineer, IT consultant and trainer. I was born and raised in the UK then emigrated to France. I’m a keen skier, grow exotic chilli peppers and like off-the-wall art, especially Salvador Dali’s sculptures.
What makes you “tick”?
I’m passionate about technology, especially software development. I enjoy a challenge, I believe that if a job’s worth doing it’s worth doing properly and I like attention to detail. I find education and skills-transfer rewarding and have been involved in community-facing IT initiatives since the early ‘80’s.
Where do you live?
Near Chamonix in the French Alps facing Mont Blanc
