About Me and This Site

steve-car-round-smallWelcome to Steve’s Internet Guide.

I’m Steve and the Web master of this site.

I have a broad technical background with over 17 years in the telecommunications Industry working in various capacities from engineering to management.

I moved from Telecoms to Computer networking in around 1995.

I spent over 10 years training and consulting mainly on networking, Microsoft Exchange and Active Directory.

I have a degree in electronics, and my professional accreditation’s include MCSE, MCT and Novel CNE.

I was also a chartered engineer and MIEE (not renewed) .

I spent the early part of my career programming in both assembly language and C.

In the the early 80 I developed an International telephone traffic monitoring system (hardware and software (8080 assembly language)). This was in commercial use for several years

I also developed several billing systems. one was used for Inter Admin accounting of the telephone traffic and the other for ship to shore radio services.

Both systems were written in C and were in commercial use for several years.

Over the last 10 years I have become familiar with PHP, and have used it mainly on my own sites for modify themes.

I initially focused on Python, and have developed several programs that I use for monitoring my own websites,MQTT demo scripts and MQTT test tools.

However I have moved my focus to node-red and JavaScript as I find it much easier and quicker to create working applications.

This Website

This website started out as a general networking and Internet technology site aimed at non technical readers.

However I am slowly moving the site to concentrate on the IOT (internet of things) and in particular MQTT and node-red.
