Edward "Shed" Plant

Welcome to! I am Edward "Shed" Plant, American by birth and English by temperament. I love solving technology problems in the Financial Services sector, teaching myself about libertarianism and economics, oh, and drinking Earl Grey tea while doing so.

I live with my wife Grace in Surrey, and am currently employed as an Technical Team Leader with Fidessa.

I am the senior member of a technical team implementing a SaaS mission-critical multi-asset trading platform for sell-side institutions in Financial Services. This covers several Fidessa products including the front, middle and back offices, exchange connectivity and the retail service network.

In autumn 2010, I completed an Information Technology Consulting MSc from the University of Kent. This course included work experience of consulting and project management with the Kent IT Clinic. I achieved a Distinction for this Masters course and furthermore won the prize for the best post-graduate Computing project in the year.

In summer 2009 I graduated from the University of Exeter with an Upper Second Class Politics BA degree. The final work of this was my dissertation "Liberty Lost?".

I'm very pleased to host Grace's artwork. She also has a comic.
