Rob Mostyn

Rob Mostyn began his IT career in 1982 in Sydney working on mini computers. In 1985, while in the UK, he came across the Macintosh and his whole view of computing shifted to both the Mac (the graphical user interface) and Omnis at the same time. He returned to the UK in 1994 where he began working for Omnis Software, which lasted until 1996 when he became an independent developer.

Industry exposure has included: health care, merchant banking, mortgage financing, entertainment, manufacturing, foreign exchange risk management, fisheries, time share resort sales, resort management, client logistics interaction, and graduate recruitment. Working with Omnis from single user systems, to small office, to SQL, Classic to Studio conversion, through to web work since 2000. For the last 3 years Rob has been designing a software solution to enable a global environmental accounting system.

Best compliment he ever had: “Delivering in 6 weeks what a building society IT department failed to deliver within 2 years“.

His maxim: “I love this environment and have thoroughly enjoyed the diversity of my career.“
