People - Len Holgate

My name is Len Holgate and I'm the founder of JetByte Limited, the developer of The Server Framework and LockExplorer and a programmer who is currently specialising in server-side C++ on Windows. I worked in investment banking in London for several years before switching to working for clients directly from our office in Guildford, Surrey.

I have a programming blog at where I write about C++ development and general technical issues, though in the past it was slightly less focused.

In my spare time I write embedded assembly language and am attempting to build a robot from scratch rather than kits. I've been chronicling my journey of discovery over at my l'Hexapod blog.

I'm always very "hands on" with all the projects that JetByte Limited undertakes so if you're interested in us doing some consulting or custom development for you then do get in touch. We're usually happiest to quote a fixed price and we pride ourselves in delivering bug free systems. Browse our portfolio here at for details of how we work and examples of the kind of code we write and if you'd like more formal CVs then simply drop us an email. Whilst we prefer to work from our office on fixed price contracts we're pretty flexible.

You can always contact me directly at
