// General Information about an assembly is controlled through the following
// set of attributes. Change these attribute values to modify the information
// associated with an assembly.
// Version information for an assembly consists of the following four values:
// Major Version
// Minor Version
// Build Number
// You can specify all the values or you can default the Revision and Build Numbers
// by using the '*' as shown below:
// In order to sign your assembly you must specify a key to use. Refer to the
// Microsoft .NET Framework documentation for more information on assembly signing.
// Use the attributes below to control which key is used for signing.
// (*) If no key is specified, the assembly is not signed.
// (*) KeyName refers to a key that has been installed in the Crypto Service
// Provider (CSP) on your machine. KeyFile refers to a file which contains
// a key.
// (*) If the KeyFile and the KeyName values are both specified, the
// following processing occurs:
// (1) If the KeyName can be found in the CSP, that key is used.
// (2) If the KeyName does not exist and the KeyFile does exist, the key
// in the KeyFile is installed into the CSP and used.
// (*) In order to create a KeyFile, you can use the sn.exe (Strong Name) utility.
// When specifying the KeyFile, the location of the KeyFile should be
// relative to the project output directory which is
// %Project Directory%\obj\<configuration>. For example, if your KeyFile is
// located in the project directory, you would specify the AssemblyKeyFile
// attribute as [assembly: AssemblyKeyFile("..\\..\\mykey.snk")]
// (*) Delay Signing is an advanced option - see the Microsoft .NET Framework
// documentation for more information on this.

Born in England, I have been programming since a very early age when my dad gave me prewritten programs to type in and run on a Sinclair ZX81 machine (seeing my name printed out on a TV screen was enough to keep me entertained!). I later did work using basic and STOS basic on the Atari ST and after that got my first PC and used Microsoft's QBasic. Later when I was about 13 I was in an airport and saw a trial copy of Visual Basic on a magazine, which I bought and it got me hooked on the Microsoft development tools.
Currently I am studying a software engineering degree and have been working with .NET since 1.0. I have just moved over to Visual Studio 2005/.NET 2.0 and am loving it! During my degree I have worked for a year at DuPont, where I ended up changing a lot of their old existing software over to .NET and improving it in the process! Since then I have been back and done some consulting work involving maintaining some of their older C++/MFC software.
While most of my current interestes involve .NET I am also confident in working with C++ in Win32, VB, Java, and have even done some development work on the Linux platform (although most of this involved ensuring that software I wrote in C++ was platform independent).
I have a strong passion for software technology, both higher level and more recently, systems level stuff (the dissertation I am doing for my degree is to implement a small compiler and virtual machine in C# for a Pascal-style language).
