Harry Webster, Research & Development:
Our early bird coder, Harry is the member of the Dev team who gets up at the crack of dawn and joins the early Support shift in a darkened room – until I get in at half eight and switch the lights on! Integral to the launch of Daily, Harry applied a lot of the lessons learned with A Certain Other Web Hosting Company Which Used To Be Based in Nottingham to the development of Daily’s backend systems, with the result that we have some of the most efficient backend systems we’ve encountered.
