A little bit about the city: Cambridge

Known as the home for one of the best and oldest universities in the world, Cambridge is thought of as an attractive place to live, thanks to its historic past and its beautiful scenery. With a thriving tech sector, Cambridge is the place to be if you’re interested in the newest and most exciting tech. As it’s only 50 minutes to central London, Cambridge is a great place to be if you want to pop to the capital to explore. As for getting around the city itself, cycling is a commonly favoured method for locals. According to the council, around a quarter of the residents here choose to cycle on their daily commute, this is made easy by the flat ground and the miles and miles of bike paths spanning the city!

Development Consultant Georgia James

Georgia is here for programmers of any shape, size or engine. She’s got some nifty technical ability herself although previously that’s been channelled into photography where she’s a technology whizz and can make the camera do anything she wishes.   She works damn hard so loves her holidays to switch off and gives Milan and Tenerife as her top two destinations. We’re still slightly disappointed that she didn’t bring an armadillo back after meeting some in Tenerife though as we think an office armadillo would be wonderful!
