I am currently a GIS Software Engineer working for a company in downtown Atlanta. I find it especially interesting merging both of these wonderful fields into an enjoyable career. I believe that applications will require growing spatial awareness. I love writing, reading and developing code, architecture and I am heavily involved in design patterns and testing frameworks.

Ok, not really! Just working over the weekend as I have a demo next week. I get a kick out of finding the simplest little things in my code. I know, this is common practice for most people, but it is so easy to get going and as your working through your code and problem, you all of a sudden realize that you can easily do what you want with less code. Here is an example:

You need to test for four conditions and your solution is one of the four but not any more than one. Well, at first you want to charge forward with a branched if statement, but you realize an if and an else would work just fine as long as you place the statements in a particular order.

I love when I discover these little nuances. They make me very, very happy.

The other thing I wanted to venture was on some ADO stuff. I recently had to merge two different datasources into one database. They contained the same fields except each contained a uniquely named value column. The ending database contained the similar columns as well as each unique value column. This stumped me for a while,but, I realized that I could create a new column in my master datatable for each of the unique value fields. Then all I had to do was import my datarow[] collections into the table, allowing ADO to match the columns.
Hope that made some sense. Maybe I'll explain it better in future writings as the reason for joining these sources lies in my need to work with overlapping segments of spatial data.
