Martin Bilton


What I do at Q2Q:

My role is largely internal training, prevention and safety net.

My part time role allows me to impart some of my knowledge and experience to the team whilst giving me the opportunity to maintain my Sysop skillsets. My many years’ experience of technical problem solving mean I’m one of the team’s go-to contacts for really complex IT issues and expanding their knowledge and understanding.  On the prevention side, I analyse systems and try to identify where improvements can be made, to help ensure that predictable problems can be prevented from happening. In other words, if there’s a puzzle to solve or a more efficient process to be found, I’ll definitely be there working it out.

Background and Achievements

I have bachelor’s and master’s degrees, plus various Microsoft certifications – from Windows 2000 to current and over 20 years’ experience as a “Full Stack Plus” (™, Pat. pending) agile solo developer I can lay claim to a whole range of T-shirts. Be it physical or virtual machines, cloud or on-prem, AWS or Azure, Linux or Windows, php or c#, IIS and SQL, classic asp/mdb or a LAMP stack, I’ve been there and done that, provisioned, installed, configured and maintained it. Add on LAN and WAN networking experience to match and over 30 years hardware experience and you end up with a dedicated and self-motivated professional possessing a wide range of transferable IT skills (and a caffeine motivated one-man Agile DevOps development team to boot).

Hobbies and Interests

Drinking coffee, reading and films.
