Fred Yeomans has been working in the world of technology for 25-odd years. He is an entrepreneur and consultant, focused on software solutions, social networking, and innovation processes. Currently, he works a Principal Consultant with T4G Limited, specializing in Portal Technologies (including SharePoint), software/systems development, service oriented architectures, and many other things which he will probably not remember until he need to use them.
Before T4G, he was VP of Technology at Whitehill Technologies, Inc., where he spent almost 9 years helping to grow the company from a start-up to one of the most successful private software companies in Canada. Prior to that he worked on internet conferencing using early VoIP, and on large military communications projects. Before even that, he worked in satellite operations and control, and remote sensing. Going way back to university, my focus was on theoretical physics and astrophysics.
Currently his interests revolve around most aspects of software development, from technologies to management, and in the area of defining sustainable, repeatable processes for innovation within technology organizations. He also has a particular interest in Tablet PC technologies.
On the personal side, Fred has a strong interest in all aspects of science, especially physical sciences, as well as philosophy and comparative religion. In addition, he is into music, playing guitar and reading almost anything he can lay his hands on.
He is also a member of the IEEE/IEEE Computer Society, and of the Association for Computing Machinery.
