Fábio is a party boy that for some reason fell into the geek world. Perhaps his taste for coding came as a consequence of his taste for games, his first program was a batch file for MS-DOS at the age of 14. The need to make it easier to start the games had him do a games menu, with password to blackmail his younger brothers.
After that his taste for programming only grew, at the age of 16 Fábio accidentaly stumbled in a program that makes programs, a.k.a. Visual Basic 5.
From there he self taught, through books, how to code in VB 5, 6 and later C, C++ and finally C#.
Currently Fábio specializes in C# Desktop and Web Development, that he's been working with since 2004. When he has time, he helps users on MSDN forums and tries to write articles on codeproject.
