Paul-Software consists of one man, me, Paul Milliken. I am twenty years old and a student at the University of Surrey (England). I am currently on an industrial placement year as part of my course, working at the HEFCE (Higher Education Funding Council for England) as an Asistant Analyst.

I may be studying for a Mathematics degree, but I also have a strong computer programming background. I first programmed on an Amstrad CPC464 when I was about four or five years old. (Of course, when I say programmed, I mean I typed in the examples from the manual. It was about a year later when I was five or six that I first made my own program from scratch.) I now program primarily in C, but also dabble in Java and C++. I am a very competent programmer in Basic, and have done quite a lot of work in VisualBasic. I have some skills at Pascal and a (very) basic knowledge of Delphi.

As a part of my placement year, I have learnt has to use the SAS System for performing various data related tasks. The primary database that I work with totals just over 5 gigabytes.

One of my specialaties is to quickly knock together a working prototype in VisualBasic, with the intention of coming back to it and re-coding it in C, only to have to work perfectly and get used full-time.
