My experience with programming began with Turbo Pascal while working on my Physics degree back in 1989.
After getting out of school, I used pre-VBA Excel macros to write some really fancy applications to help with the job I was doing. This inspired me to try to write "Windows" programs and to search out Visual Basic 3.0.
I wrote a bunch of small applications and ran them against Access and FoxPro. However, this still wasn't my primary job.
In 1994, I went on my first contract, a 3-month deal that turned into 3-years. I learned a lot more about development. Development was in VB3, VB4 and ASP. I got a chance to admin NT4 and SQL Server 6 and 6.5.
After moving on to another company, I spent another 2 years with VB and then 5 years with Java and JSP.
In March of 2004, I installed Visual Studio 2003. I tasted C#, and became hopelessly addicted.
My other interests are my 3 sons, my wife
, metal detecting, yard work, travel and learning new things.
update: Now love SharePoint, PowerShell, JQuery, C#, PHP
