Stephen Lasham

Born in England in 1966 (I'm now 38). I moved to New Zealand at 18 and qualified with a New Zealand Certificate in Data Processing (NZCDP). I worked for Nestle New Zealand for three years, then as a consultant for several software houses, and for the last ten years I've worked in local government. For 18 of these years I worked with IBM System/38 and AS/400's programming in RPG/400. For the last year I have been writing SQL and using Crystal Reports, after the council changed its core software to Pathway by Geac. I am married with three children.
