I started my programmer career over 26 years ago doing COBOL and SAS on a MVS mainframe. It didn't take long for me to move into windows programming. I started my windows programming in Delphi (Pascal) with a Microsoft SQL server back end. I started working with vb.net when the beta 2 came out in 2001. After spending most of my programming life as a windows programmer I started to check out asp.net in 2004. I achieved my MCSD.net in April 2005. I have done a lot of MS SQL database stuff. I have a lot of experience with Window Service and Web services as well. I spent three years as a consultant programing in C#. I really enjoyed it and found the switch between vb.net and C# to be mostly syntax. In my current position I am programming in C# working on WPF and MSSql database stuff. Lately I have been using VS2019.

On a personal note I am a born again Christian, if anyone has any questions about what it means to have a right relationship with God or if you have questions about who Jesus Christ is, send me an e-mail. ben.kubicek[at]netzero[dot]com You need to replace the [at] with @ and [dot] with . for the email to work. My relationship with God gives purpose and meaning to my life.

I have been developing software since I first got hold of a ZX80 age 10. After a few years with BBC Basic and 6502 assembler (I used to write articles for PCW and Acorn User) I then discovered Pascal with Objects and quickly moved to C++ where I spent 15happy years before finding the joys of c#.

After discovering the wonders of working for myself I founded Hollingside Technologies (www.hollingside.com). We offer c# / c++ / Delphi / SQL and also management consultancy. As well as the consultancy work we have run a number of successful C# and Object Oriented Programming training courses. Past bespoke software that we have written includes mobile software (pocket PC) that integrates with MS Exchange via GPRS for a sales team; Asp.net remote hardware monitoring software; scanning and image recognition software for passport control and a heap of other stuff.

When not being a geek I play guitar in a semi-successful rock band(www.stircrazy.org) and am a competitive fencer.

Other spare time is spent walking my dogs and riding my motorbike.

After all that? Give me a good beer and a splatter movie!

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).

I live in Prague, the capital city of Czech republic (most of the time Smile | :) ). I've been very interested in functional programming recently and I have a passion for the new Microsoft F# language. I'm writing a book about Functional Programming in the Real World that shows the ideas using examples in C# 3.0 and F#.

I've been Microsoft MVP (for C#) since 2004 and I'm one of the most active members of the F# community. I'm a computer science student at Charles University of Prague. My hobbies include photography, fractals and of course many things related to computers (except fixing them). My favorite book writers are Terry Pratchett and Philip K Dick and I like paintings by M. C. Escher.
