Mick Sharpe

Partner - Web Developer

Co-founder of Bitingedge with a love of technology and the natural world. Mick developed the programming bug in the early 1980s spending too much time pondering the inner workings of Sir Clive Sinclair’s legendary ZX Spectrum.

This interest was nurtured through his public sector career developing utilities and applications utilising various programming languages ranging from the ubiquitous Visual Basic to Lisp for AutoCad. Now a well-seasoned individual, Mick is able to quickly distil any programming task down to its most basic elements and deliver a robust, streamlined solution.

When not rattling the keys he likes to get out into the hills with his two Labs, Maggie and Bella, and has often been seen silhouetted against the Long Crag skyline.
