My name is John Bates.
I am an IT professional working from York in the county of North Yorkshire in the UK. I write software in C# and F# although other languages have featured in past decades. I’m currently particularly interested in data mining and applications of functional programming languages.
I’m a husband and a father and enjoy living in Harrogate. I don’t run as much as I used to but I still like climbing hills. I probably spend too much time tinkering with gadgets or dabbling in social networking.
I can be contacted by email: my domain is “hciyork.co.uk” and my username is “john”.
