About Virtual Pair Programmers

Virtual Pair Programmers launched its first course in 2009. It was set up by Richard Chesterwood, an experienced trainer who was looking for ways to help customers who couldn’t attend courses he was running due to cost or travel constraints.

The company is headed up by Richard and fellow trainer Matt Greencroft. Richard and Matt first met when studying mathematics at university in 1991. They have between them worked as programmers in defense, banking, risk analysis, financial management, information management and web consultancy, and so have great industry experience to draw on in their training programmes.

Richard and Matt are supported by a small team of helpers - Simon Green, James Moss, Ian Tapton and Martin Blakehurst. Together we build the training programmes, and proivde customer support.
