Tony Demetriou
Technical Consultant
Biography:

Tony has been working with computers since before he could read. He loves solving problems - not just building the technology, but understanding the underlying issues. Tony has spent over a decade working at Macquarie University, where he has been involved in the evolution as webpages shifted from a source of text into the front-end for every major computer system. He is particularly excited by upcoming needs and technologies with managing large amounts of data. Tony’s brain cannot shut down, so at any given time he is probably over-thinking five different topics, possibly including economic theory, game design, brain development, or Ninja Turtles.
