The IT gooroo voodoo that I doo.

Boston (MA, United States)

Steve Griffiths.   Visionary.  Genius.  Computer Scientist.   Even from an early age, he quickly stole the spotlight with his brilliant and unique mind.   At age 7, he wrote his first computer program.   At age 17, he figured out the highest number a VAX/VMS mainframe could represent in minutes (as a challenge from his teacher) and discovered a security vulnerability in the VMS operating system (one of the most secure in the world), reported it to the authorities, and wrote a proof of concept Trojan horse program that successfully obtained user passwords.   And at age 19, he built a public campus-wide bulletin board system called The Realm of Chaos, pre-dating Facebook, and wrote The Matrix (named after the Internet-like construct in William Gibson’s Neuromancer), an Internet search engine that pre-dated Google Search, alone, in only 3 days, with over 10,000 lines of code, both in college.   Then, he completed his Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science.  He would later go on to earn his Master’s degree in Computer Science and over 20 technical certifications, including the highly in demand Microsoft Azure cloud certificate - Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE): Cloud Platform and Infrastructure.   With the keys to the kingdom, Steve ushers in a new era, working for Fortune 100 companies such as United Healthcare, Bose, IBM, HP, Sanofi Genzyme, and Microsoft, inventing new solutions to address their problems.   Today, Steve Griffiths has changed the face of information technology by resolving flaws in software code, building a system to automate the build of a software image, designing the mass migration of virtual machines to the cloud, creating a private cloud (prior to popular use of the term), and work in artificial intelligence.
