Retard Boy

Retard Boy is an alias given to Alex Matthews by Dan Huntley when Alex started working for SmartData. For the next seven months of his employment, Alex probably came to the conclusion that Dan didn't like him, but when after this time Dan congratulated him on a piece of code he'd produced, calling him 'Alex' for the first time, he realised that he'd just been a bit of a dunce up until that point.

He now codes mainly in the Microsoft DotNet suite of languages and SQL, but occassionally dabbles in PHP as well.
