Warren wrote his first computer program in 1970 (yes, it was Fortran). He earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Waterloo and his Bachelor of Computer Science degree at the University of Windsor. After a few years at IBM, he worked on a Master of Mathematics (Computer Science) degree at the University of Waterloo. He decided to stay home to take care of his newborn son rather than complete that degree. That decision cost him his career, but he would gladly make the same decision again. Warren is now retired, but he finds it hard to do nothing, so he writes web performance articles for the Monitor.Us blog. Life is good!
