Instructor – Bruce Devlin

Bruce runs a company called Mr MXF. He is the global head of technical standards for the Film and TV industries and can often be seen riding his bicycle in Chiddingfold. He programmed his first computer using punched cards in 1975 and some of his work powers every cinema on the planet as well as Hollywood Studios and global Television Distribution. There are too many middle aged white men like Bruce in the technology business and he hopes that by training people that don’t look like him, the future will be a more inclusive and more imaginative world.
