Philip Stephens nears a forty-year career in IT including analysis, design, coding, deployment, support, problem resolution, and situation management in large-scale information systems.
He was a key technical contributor in diverse industries where IT was crucial to success. He worked at two large-scale suppliers of IT hardware, software, and services in key customer interface roles and was a principal at a software services company. His background includes coding in different computer languages, extensive travel, and addressing IT challenges. Philip has great appreciation of how opportunities have risen for him through coding skills.
Retiring from full-time employment in 2014 has allowed Philip to focus on consulting for promotion of IT and coding. Philip believes that having these technical skills is valuable to today’s youth and will provide them opportunities similar to those that were open to him through IT.
