Compute Thing Limited

Compute Thing Limited is a source of software testing, project management and software development talent. With a background in software and testing for systems that could loosely be described as "TV, radio and media", but in reality cover a broad variety of large, complex systems of servers, PC software and intelligent devices:

  • TV - CCTV from captured image to management software and large Network Video Recorders and servers
  • Radio - UMTS, GPRS, Tetra networks and PMR two-way radio handsets
  • other media - real-time fault tolerant Operating System development for public telephone exchanges

Why  "Compute Thing" ?

My work has included testing and development of software for standard PCs, workstation and servers. However, it has always had an emphasis on systems that include appliances, real-time systems, network communications, and things that are operated without a keyboard, screen and mouse. i.e. "Things that Compute" that may not always be described as "Computers". There has been an emphasis on machine to machine communication, and other elements which are now described as part of the " Internet of Things".


Compute Thing is based in South Queensferry, just outside Edinburgh on the Forth Coast. Nearby are quiet beaches, Port Edgar Marina and a few famous bridges. (The driftwood pictured here is close to the new Forth Crossing).
