He used to have biography here Smile | :) , but now he will hire someone (for free offcourse Big Grin | :-D ), Who writes his biography on his behalf Smile | :)

He is Great Fan of Mr. Johan Rosengren (his idol),Lim Bio Liong, Nishant S and DavidCrow and Believes that, he will EXCEL in his life by following there steps!!!

He started with Visual C++ then moved to C# then he become language agnostic, you give him task,tell him the language or platform, he we start immediately, if he knows the language otherwise he quickly learn it and start contributing productively

Last but not the least, For good 8 years he was Visual CPP MSMVP!

Ok, it's about time I updated this profile. I still live near 'Beastly' Eastleigh in Hampshire, England. However I have recently been granted a permamant migration visa to Australia - so if you're a potential employer from down under and like the look of me, please get in touch.
Still married - just, still with just a son and daughter. But they are now 8 and 7 resp and when together they have the energy of a nuclear bomb.
I worked at Teleca UK for over 8.5 years (but have now moved to TikitTFB) and have done loads of different things. Heavily involved with MFC, SQL, C#, The latest is ASP.NET with C# and Javascript. Moving away from Trolltech Qt3 and 4.

Started programming eight years ago in an attempt to see how my computer worked. I then found that coding myself was often the best way to get what I want.

Most of my work has been around windows mobile devices and communications. My most popular project released was gsmBeam, a device to device file transfer tool used over CSD lines on GSM mobile networks.

This is not my job, I just do it for the fun.

Started programming on a Commodore Vic 20(!), and later entered employment programming for the Mac back in the days of System 6. Soon the pull of the Dark Side became too strong and I switched to Windows (Win 3.1) and have been coding for Windows ever since.

I'm now lead programmer for a small software house in Glasgow, Scotland. Our main products include PTFB Pro, ColorCache, and LogMeister.
Rob Philpott
Architect
United Kingdom United Kingdom
I am a .NET architect/developer based in London working mostly on financial trading systems. My love of computers started at an early age with BASIC on a 3KB VIC20 and progressed onto a 32KB BBC Micro using BASIC and 6502 assembly language. From there I moved on to the blisteringly fast Acorn Archimedes using BASIC and ARM assembly.

I started developing with C++ since 1990, where it was introduced to me in my first year studying for a Computer Science degree at the University of Nottingham. I started professionally with Visual C++ version 1.51 in 1993.

I moved over to C# and .NET in early 2004 after a long period of denial that anything could improve upon C++.

Recently I did a bit of work in my old language of C++ and I now realise that frankly, it's a total pain in the arse.

Software Developer (Senior)

I began coding at the ripe old age of eleven (yep, I've always been a nerd). Back then every 8-bit computer on the market had its own flavor of BASIC burned into the EPROM and I was adept at most of them. Somewhere in my bedroom there was an actual bed, but you'd be hard pressed to find it surrounded as it was. My collection included a C64, VIC20, TRS80, APPLE II+, TI-99/4A, and even one of those silver Timex Sinclair "computers" with the chicklet keys.

Eventually I taught myself 6502 assembler, and later Pascal and C. While I spent the majority of my professional career doing a mixture of C++, C#, and dabbling in ARM Assembler, for the last year I've been focusing on JAVA and the Android Platform. While I am a Windows guy at heart lately I'm finding some love for UBUNTU as well.

When I am not at the computer I am hanging out with my 12 year old son. He just finished coding a javascript implementation of Conway's Game of Life. Oh yeah, I guess that means we were in front of the computer. Go figure!
