Meet Kyle, The Latest Member Of The Matthew James Team

This week saw us add another member to the Matthew James Publishing ranks. Kyle Broadhurst joins us as a software developer, working out of our Marple offices on projects to do with our Come and See and People of God programs.  He’s also hard at work on some other things that we can’t quite tell you about yet too. Exciting! Kyle joins us fresh out of university – he genuinely got his results this morning! – and will be working with us for the foreseeable future.

I sat down to have a quick chat with him earlier today, so you could all get to know him too.

Hi, Kyle! Can you start off by telling people a little about yourself?

I’m 22, I’m from Heywood, Manchester and have just finished my degree at Huddersfield University. I specialise in software development for PC’s and mobile devices. My hobbies include playing guitar/bass, video games and of course reading.  

You’ve worked for Matthew James for two whole days now – how has it been working with us?

I’m really enjoying it. The office is a great environment to work in and everyone I’ve worked with has been really nice.

What are you working on right now?

I’m working on developing software which will compliment and be the counterpart to some books we currently have available. I’m also working on some of the interactive aspects of our People of God and Come and See programs

You’ve just finished your degree; your results came through and you’ve graduated with a 2:1. Congratulations! What was your degree in? Thank you! My degree was BSc (Hons) Computer Science from Huddersfield University.

Thank you! My degree was BSc (Hons) Computer Science from Huddersfield University.

What was it that has made you want to study Computer Science?

I’ve always loved working with computers since I got my first laptop in high school. Since then I’ve always been playing around with everything I can get my hands on and decided this is what I want to do for a living.

What was the best book you read on the subject during your time at university?

My favorite book during university was Computing With Quantum Cats: From Colossus to Qubits which is an introduction to quantum computing.

More importantly What is your favourite book?

My favorite book of all time has to be Catcher In The Rye. I love it so much I even got the cover tattooed on my arm! 

Thanks for chatting to me, Kyle. All of us at Matthew James are happy to have a new member of the team on board and are really looking forward to working with him in the future. Most importantly, we’re eager to see what he’s cooking up for us too; as I’m sure quite a few of you are as well.
