Have been a Code Project MVP 5 years running and was Microsoft C# MVP 4 years running, MBCS, MIAP and a whole bunch of other stuff. Now I just help run Scottish Developers which is a user group with software development events in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dundee and I have also started an open source project to help with Password Validation

Main topics I blog about:
* Parallelization in .NET
* Code Quality
* Data Security

Groups

Below is the list of groups in which the member is participating

The user group is a not-for-profit organisation, with a mission to improve the developer community in Scotland. The strategy is to utilise the Web Site, day conferences, evening seminars and other developer events to continuously improve and develop the skillset of members and the general IT community.

Most events are free or low costs, are open for everyone to attend, with no limitations on qualifications, skill levels or experience. If you have a genuine interest in I.T. and development then membership of Scottish Developers may be just for you.

It is important for all members to feel they can contribute to Scottish Developers. This can be by coming to events, presenting sessions, writing articles and being an active member on the forum area of the web site.
