Keith Pitty

Born in Hobart, Keith has been fascinated by computer programming since he was introduced to Pascal by Professor Jan Hext in a Computer Science lecture at Sydney University in 1980. After graduating with a BSc, Keith spent many years developing software on IBM mainframes, typically using technologies such as PL/I, IMS, CICS and JCL. This experience left him searching for a more elegant approach. Exploration of Object Orientation and Smalltalk followed before he was enticed by the Java juggernaut. A Senior Consultant with Cirrus Technologies Pty Ltd in Sydney since 2000, Keith has continued to search for more elegant software development approaches and during the last two years has taken an increasing interest in Ruby on Rails whilst keeping a keen eye on Java EE developments.
