Alex Hedley is a computer programmer from the UK.
I first came to 599CD.com in about 2011 for an Access course after finding a few helpful videos on YouTube.
After helping out on the forums for a while I was offered Tech Help and thoroughly enjoyed the various opportunities that have come up, no request is ever the same.
A bit of back story, I studied Joint Honours Accounting and Computer Science at Newcastle University.
Working part time at a Food Retail store I continued this after Uni doing various roles. Travelling up and down the country training staff.
I then did some Reporting for an Export company.
My last role within Retail was a Software Tester for a new Bonus Scheme they were relaunching.
After Retail I was working as a second line analyst supporting the IT insfrastructure for a major corporation, again moving into a Reporting Analyst role.
Spent rather a long amount of time in Excel and wonders of VBA automating most things with Macros.
I have now moved onto my current role as a Developer, programming systems for large companies.
