50 years on my Computer Science School voted #1

Great to see my alma mater University of Birmingham School of Computer Science and  IT coming #1 in the Guardian University Guide 2014.

Reading for an applied maths degree I took the first ever FORTRAN course offered in September 1963 exactly 50 years ago. Overnight this single course changed my career and I have been studying, teaching and researching computer science every since.
