The author always had an interest for the moldable attributes of software and the exciting field of electronics. It is then not surprising that he graduated with a degree in Electrical Engineering (USA) with emphasis on computer architecture (my favourite), control theory and electromagnetics.

Began his career back in 1989 at Philips Semiconductors/Europe where he spent many years doing what he loved most (aside from the obvious), marrying hardware and software into exciting projects.

Later moved on to non-embedded software and have since been involved in designing and developing web applications, database-driven backend and GUI applications in both Unix and Microsoft platforms.
That with the ocassional embedded development project.

Formerly a Linux fanatic with a load of free/open-source software on his name. Yet years ago he decided to embrace the Microsoft .NET platform. The latter to the amazement of his friends.

Currently designing systems in .NET and Java platforms. Flight simulator enthusiast (http://simulation.lordofwingsPTY.com/).

Web Developer
United States United States
I have been bumming around doing Software development for 22+ years. A bit of everything, including a most enjoyable stint at NuMega Technologies where I (and 2-3 other amazing developers) wrote SoftICE/95, SoftICE for Windows NT 3.0 and 3.5. I also developed the MACH5 technology behind the TrueTime profiler. During my time there I was fortunate enough to have the office next to Matt Pietrek and saw 1st hand the demands and difficulties of writing about software and software development. Still, I spent 2 years as a monthly columnist writing about Java technologies.

As of this time, I just write a lot of code, mostly C#, but some C++/ATL/COM, Assembler, and the occasional VB6/VB.NET. I focus mainly on UI because I spent so much time in the bowels of the OS that it just plain bores me.
