About the Author

Joe Woodbury
Software Developer (Senior)
United States United States
Joe is one of those software engineers with a film degree. His first paid programming job (what, you think film is a good way to make a living?) was writing games for Apple II's using 6502 assembly. He soon moved to 80x86 assembly, C, C++ (for a long time), C# and then back to C++ with some work in C#.

He first wrote software for Windows 3.0 in 1990. Save for some continued work in DOS and a horrid, and mercifully brief, foray into OS/2, he has concentrated on designing and writing software for all versions and types of Windows except RT.
