New Technical Developer at UKClimbing - Martin Mckenna

We are extremely pleased to welcome Martin Mckenna to the UKC/UKH team. Martin is a keen climber and programmer living in Glasgow and a graduate of the University of Strathclyde.

He has been climbing since childhood. "I was introduced to climbing by my Dad on my 7th birthday with a trip down to the local climbing wall." Since then he has gone on to develop a full-blown obsession for both summer and winter climbing of all types, especially in Scotland.

Martin joins UKC/UKH as Assistant Technical Developer to Paul Phillips and Stephen Horne. At a time when the technical demands of the web site and app development are ever increasing it is going to be a great boost to us to have an extra pair of hands to help move things on as fast as we would like.
