Mostly harmless and sometimes helpful punk, who sold out and is now a software architect and programmer with some company.
Avoids certifications like the plague.
Also a pseudo-designer with special interest in typography; a decent pianist; and a horrible guitarist - soaking up new interests on a weekly basis.
Language experience in rough chronological order:
- Amstrad CPC 464 BASIC
- Amiga AMOS BASIC
- Amiga assembly
- Turbo Pascal
- x86 assembly
- VBA (for MS Word)
- ActionScript 2 + 3
... with some dabbling in Java, Objective-C, Ruby and others.
These days, most work days take place with ASP.NET MVC (I have an intense dislike of WebForms), WPF, WinForms, VSTO, Flash/ActionScript 3/Flex/Air.
