About the Author

Mexico Mexico
Born in 1969. First prorgram made in commodore 64 on early 80s (storing it in regular audio cassettes). Then fortran in a PDP in middle 80s. First serious program at the age of 18th in GWBASIC in late 80s. So, almost 20 years programming.

From 2003 to 2006 engaged into a development outsourced by an international company. They couldn't make it.

Hired 2 years ago by one of our COOs to be in charge of the development, so I have control on what is developed and most importantly, how. Of course, the "what" is strongly influenced by what the users need.

I think we can make great things with C Sharp, I am applying all my knowledge and experience in programming for the over 20 years (including experience in implementing business systems) to the C# and .NET Techonology. I don't think we need to complicate our lives very much, we can program in a smarter way and just take advantage of what this language offers without reinventing the wheel.

However, in the last 18 months; I've been more engaged into JavaScript, CSS and a little bit of ASP (for the database connection) finding absolute no need of using the .NET framework yet acomplishing very important advances.

I don't like Visual Studio, by the way. I prefer to code by hand or using simpler IDEs... antiquated? Maybe, but still think it is better. You have the *control* in your hands. And actually, rather than "by hand", I simply mean creation of complex dynamic objects that would resolve UI characteritics dynamically (i.e., a repository of UI objects in the database or via XML or similar; and a big unique object capable to resolve such objects), instead of "dragging and dropping" objects creating a huge source code base.

Visual Studio is still for "programmers" (quoted).

Raised in Mexico but currently living in New Jersey (unitl October 2010)
