Interactive Outdoors was officially formed in June 2000 as Active Outdoors, a sports and outdoor leisure site, by Stuart Jamieson and Keith Peterson while in University. When the site failed to take off, Stuart went solo as an IT contractor under the new name Interactive Outdoors but retaining the old domain name. As a consulant, Stuart has worked for clients as varied as The Gleneagles hotel, The T in the Park music festival, The Harelquin Restuarant Group, Biomar - aquaculture feeds, Scottish Enterprise, and Elmar - suppliers to the Oil and Gas Industry.
Working as a programmer, Stuart has delivered projects in C/C++, Visual Basic, PHP, Java, Javascript, and other languages. However he has also carried out other aspects of consultancy such as project management, hardware specification and construction, and system maintainance. Away from IT, Stuart derives pleasure from creating and is adept at delivering other media such as writing and Ebook design, Photo editing, and Video Editing.
