Contact me:

I am a developer working in ASP.NET MVC from the early CTPs through to ASP.NET Core.

I work in both VB.NET and C#, but also write a lot of scripts in Powershell which I have become increasingly enamoured by due to some of the language features introduced in later versions.

I originally started professional software development using ASP.NET (webforms). I then switched jobs and worked almost exclusively in ColdFusion. It gave me the chance to get to know MVC a lot more through the Mach-II framework - an implementation of MVC for Coldfusion. When ASP.NET MVC came out, convinced our employers to migrate due to a wider availability of software engineers (it was incredibly difficult to get good ColdFusion developers!). When it came to picking up ASP.NET MVC, I felt I had a much stronger advantage than if I had continued using 'classic' ASP.NET webforms.

I answered more questions in the first two months on here, than I did in five years at Experts Exchange, and I enjoy the fact that stackoverflow is more community based.

Initially spurred on by the challenge of "doing better than Jonathon Bolster", I found that helping out is extremely enjoyable and helping people of all technical skill levels is great fun.
