Martyn Catlow’s two work passions are weather and computing. He has combined the two in a 43-year career in the UK’s Meteorology Office. He combined theory and practice to master Fortran and Assembler programming. He has worked on proprietary operating systems right through to Linux. He helped plan and execute the Met Office’s move from Bracknell to Exeter, the largest IT relocation in Europe at the time. He is now examining the future of supercomputing in the cloud.
Martyn was interviewed by Richard Sharpe for Archives of IT.
