James Burt

I'm a software developer who lives in Brighton. I've worked for Internet companies since 2000 and like using Java, MySQL and agile processes. Along with David Pashley I run the Brighton Java user group. I currently work for Crunch.

As well as being a programmer I have an MA in Creative and Critical Writing from Sussex University. I help out at Brighton's Hammer and Tongue Poetry night, run the Not for the Faint-Hearted workshops and write fiction (I'm currently sending out a novel out to agents). I also enjoy speaking in public and have given talks on topics such as Psychogeography and How to Escape From a WW2 POW Camp.

I love running. I'm currently recovering from a lingering injury, but in 2011 I ran three marathons. I'm hoping that I can recover enough to run another by the end of 2013
