My name is Simon Dobson. I’m a retired software architect and some-time Bridge tutor. I originally developed Bridge Deal Manager because I couldn’t find any other product with a friendly user interface for designing deals. When I became a tutor, I kept adding functionality I needed.

However, BDM would not be a product at all, except for the endless encouragement of fellow Leeds Bridge Club tutor, Brian Davison. I am deeply grateful to him for his many good suggestions, invaluable running review and all round good humour.
