About the Author

Toby Emden
United States United States
Toby Emden has been coding since the early days of 8-bit home computers, when developers had to write pure assembly to get anything worthwhile done. As a mere ankle-biter, his first coding projects included several games written for the ZX Spectrum in pure Z80 assembly code. Nowadays, his languages of choice are C++, C# and Java.

A member of the IEEE Computer Society and Worldwide Institute of Software Architects, Toby has spent ten years as an I.T. security executive, delivering enterprise security solutions for Fortune 100 organizations.

When not boring people at parties with jokes about cryptography and polymorphism, he enjoys writing, traveling and spending quality time with his wife and three cats. He still hasn't figured out how to cure cancer with .NET, but figures world peace can be solved with a Java wrapper class.
