Software Developer (Senior) Paddedwall Software
United States United States
I've been paid as a programmer since 1982 with experience in Pascal, and C++ (both self-taught), and began writing Windows programs in 1991 using Visual C++ and MFC. In the 2nd half of 2007, I started writing C# Windows Forms and ASP.Net applications, and have since done WPF, Silverlight, WCF, web services, and Windows services.

My weakest point is that my moments of clarity are too brief to hold a meaningful conversation that requires more than 30 seconds to complete. Thankfully, grunts of agreement are all that is required to conduct most discussions without committing to any particular belief system.

Born and living in Milan (Italy), I'm an engineer in electronics actually working in the ICT department of an important oil/gas & energy company as responsible for planning and engineering of ICT infrastructures.

Product Manager
United States United States
I've been in software development since 1994. Over the years I've learned quite a lot in what it takes to complete the process of pushing out a quality product to customers in a timely fashion. As most of my colleagues could attest, there have been many challenges in our new and growing field in the past couple of decades as the industry matures rapidly. Much more so than most others historically speaking.

As such, I've learned one of the best aspects of software engineering is embracing the change that inherently comes along with it as new technologies constantly emerge to help us improve our world one application at a time as we make sense of the overwhelming amount of data now prevalent in the Information Age.

We truly live in a time unlike that ever known to mankind in recorded history, and it is my hope to do my part to help it along to face the challenges and demands of tomorrow.

It all started when my folks were nice enough to drop $400 on a TI-99/4A and an adapter so I could save programs on my casette player. That, and a subscription to Compute! magazine, was the thunderbolt that got me to where I am today.

I live in NC where I've worked with Microsoft technology for 11 years. I now work for SlickEdit working on the Tools for Visual Studio 2005 product. Writing software that I use myself every day... could it get any better than that?

Architect

Toby Emden has been coding since the early days of 8-bit home computers, when developers had to write pure assembly to get anything worthwhile done. As a mere ankle-biter, his first coding projects included several games written for the ZX Spectrum in pure Z80 assembly code. Nowadays, his languages of choice are C++, C# and Java.

A member of the IEEE Computer Society and Worldwide Institute of Software Architects, Toby has spent ten years as an I.T. security executive, delivering enterprise security solutions for Fortune 100 organizations.

When not boring people at parties with jokes about cryptography and polymorphism, he enjoys writing, traveling and spending quality time with his wife and three cats. He still hasn't figured out how to cure cancer with .NET, but figures world peace can be solved with a Java wrapper class.
