Steve Holden Is a consultant, advising clients on system and network architectures and the design and implementation of programmed web systems. He also teaches classes on TCP/IP, network security, database and programming topics, and is the author of "Python Web Programming".

Steve has spent time on both sides of the "academic divide", and was an early researcher into the integration of text, graphics and database while teaching system development topics at Manchester University. This research led Steve to form Desktop Connection Limited, the first UK reseller of Frame Technology's (now Adobe's) FrameMaker software. His customers included British Telecom, British Aerospace, British Gas, and Sun Microsystems.

Born and raised in the UK, Steve has travelled throughout Europe and the USA on teaching assignments. He now lives in Portland, OR, the USA's open source epicenter, where when not consulting, teaching or writing he enjoys looking for worthwhile American beers, entertaining friends and family, and reading science fiction.
