I have been writing code since the late 70's. After learning COBOL and RPG II in school, I proceeded never to use them again, moving quickly on to BASIC, C, Assembler, Perl and others. Eventually to Java, C# and VB.Net. C# is my favorite of the bunch although Java (my first object oriented language, having skipped over C++) holds a close second.
I live in the state of Washington and love it here. When I'm not writing code for work, I occasionally write code for fun. You can see an example or two at http://www.faustware.com. And I occasionally blog at http://www.tomfaust.com.
