Sanjay was weaned on VB6, then was dragged kicking and screaming into the world of .NET development, with VB.NET. He was pleasantly surprised, and quickly migrated existing projects to reap the benefits of the massive .NET libraries.
Quite a while ago, he started a pet project that involved fading in and out controls (as well as other animations) in a Windows Forms application. After weeks of hard work, he finally realized that there had to be a better way.
He found WPF.
He changed his main programming language to C#, and has never looked back.
