Jiang Qiu
Team Leader Avanade
United Kingdom United Kingdom
Thoroughly convinced by the simplicity of C# and the richness of the base class library, Jiang moved from Java/C++ to the Microsoft .NET platform after having completed his computer science degree. A few years into your run-of-the-mill business reporting projects, he discovered the fun of working with SharePoint and has since been more and more enamored with the breadth of the product. Sadly to say, not all projects involve heroic debugging sessions with parallel and concurrent programming and sometimes SharePoint designer is all he gets to plays with.
