Sam ThompsonAPL Developer
Sam is an apprentice APL Developer at Optima Systems. He has had a keen interest in computers since he was a child who loved playing video games on his family’s computer. After taking Maths, Further Maths and Computing during A-levels he attended the University of Sheffield doing Computer Science for two years.
After leaving University Sam took various part time jobs whilst searching for a more permanent job in computing.
He still helps his local Cricket Club when there is support required. Because of his previous experience with programming languages and computer systems Sam decided to search for an apprenticeship.
After two interviews Sam was accepted as the newest Optima apprentice. Learning APL will be an exciting new challenge for Sam as it's quite different to any programming languages that he knew previously.
