I have been a VB developer since 1999 and started on .NET 3 months before it was released (on the beta).

I love what I do and even though I always write applications that work with data in one way or another for the company I work for, I love working on things like encryption, Windows API, graphics (trying out managed DirectX) and anything else that the big corporates hardly have an interest in.

Aside from dabbling in BASIC on his old Atari 1040ST years ago, Leslie's programming experience didn't really begin until he discovered the Internet in the late 90s. There he found a treasure trove of information about two of his favorite interests: MIDI and sound synthesis.

After spending a good deal of time calculating formulas he found on the Internet for creating new sounds by hand, he decided that an easier way would be to program the computer to do the work for him. This led him to learn C. He discovered that beyond using programming as a tool for synthesizing sound, he loved programming in and of itself.

Eventually he taught himself C++ and C#, and along the way he immersed himself in the ideas of object oriented programming. Like many of us, he gotten bitten by the design patterns bug and a copy of GOF is never far from his hands.

Now his primary interest is in creating a complete MIDI toolkit using the C# language. He hopes to create something that will become an indispensable tool for those wanting to write MIDI applications for the .NET framework.

Besides programming, his other interests are photography and playing his Les Paul guitars.

All my life I have been passionate about architecture / software design, as this is the cornerstone to a maintainable and extensible application. As such, I have enjoyed exploring some crazy ideas and discovering that they are not so crazy after all. I also love writing about my ideas and seeing the community response. As a consultant, I've enjoyed working in a wide range of industries such as aerospace, boatyard management, remote sensing, emergency services / data management, and casino operations. I've done a variety of pro-bono work non-profit organizations related to nature conservancy, drug recovery and women's health.

United States United States
I began programming on my Commodore 64 at around the age of 12. After migrating to DOS and then Windows, I decided to take on the Web. Several languages and platforms later, I have settled in with .NET nicely. I am currently the owner of a software consulting company and lead application developer for a learning-based technology consultation company.

The love of a finished application is usually at war with the desire to improve it as soon as it's released (they're never really finished).

I am 27 year and live in the Netherlands. I have graduated in 2004, for the study Computer Science. After my study I have started working as a Technical Consultant in the Identity & Access management branch (http://www.traxion.com).

I have acquired my MCSE and MCSD certifications. Currently I developing a lot of cool things in .NET & Java, I'm also upgrading my certifications to .NET 2.0.

I am the main programmer for the product that we are developing within our company it's called the IM Sequencer (Formally known as the MIIS Sequencer). This product enables users to control the execution from the management agents in MIIS (Microsoft Identity Integration Server) or as it is called now ILM 2007 (Identity Lifecycle Manager 2007) it also generates extensive reports that contains all the results from the management agents that enables administrators to easily track down errors or failures.

Check out the products website http://www.traxionsolutions.com/imsequencer. There are allot of cool features implemented, is uses WMI to connect and communicate with MIIS \ ILM, threading to execute multiple agents, XSLT for reporting transformation, XML for configuration, WinForms for displaying and Win Service for the scheduler engine, very cool!

United States United States
I received my first computer, an Atari 800 XL, when I was 8 years old in 1981 and discovered BASIC programming.

Following the Atari a couple of years later, I moved to the Commodore 128D, where I started experimenting with assembler. I progressed through IBM XT, AT, and then all models of clones in between up to the latest P4s. I still dabble in x86 assembler, however my primary development environment today is C++ and C# and to a lesser degree now Delphi 7.0.

I have mostly self taught myself, by example and experimentation although I did receive a Bachelor of Applied Computing at the University of Tasmania / Australia to 'get that piece of paper'.

Professionally, I've been in R&D, consulting, management, sysadmin and training roles since the early 90'. Prior to entering IT professionally, I built a custom application for an abattoir in the late 80's entirely in Turbo Pascal 5.5 to track and report on beef production, due for export to Japan.

I now also enjoy using computers for mixing and recording my own music and satisfying my passion for photography.

I live in Prague, the capital city of Czech republic (most of the time Smile | :) ). I've been very interested in functional programming recently and I have a passion for the new Microsoft F# language. I'm writing a book about Functional Programming in the Real World that shows the ideas using examples in C# 3.0 and F#.

I've been Microsoft MVP (for C#) since 2004 and I'm one of the most active members of the F# community. I'm a computer science student at Charles University of Prague. My hobbies include photography, fractals and of course many things related to computers (except fixing them). My favorite book writers are Terry Pratchett and Philip K Dick and I like paintings by M. C. Escher.
