I've been a developer for over 30 years at all levels from junior developer to team lead and project manager. I learnt Pascal at University and my first job was programming in FORTRAN 66. I've since moved to Silverlight with C# & .NET via Ada, C and C++ and a bit of ASP.NET. I've worked at companies varying in size from a five person startup to a multinational games company.

Over the years I've used most operating systems (apart from MacOS/iOS!), starting with PR1MOS and then moving onto various flavours of Unix. I'm now exclusively on Windows, but really should get back into other areas. The only things that are holding me back are lack of time and resources!

comment How do we encourage edits to obsolete/out of date answers?
Not sticking the accepted answer to the question would be a start. Then if and when a new answer gets more upvotes it will rise above the old answer.

comment We should have a question status similar to locking that non mods can set on posts
@durron597 if the question was significant then people would be unlikely to lose rep anyway. You don't lose rep from posts older than 60 days scoring 3+ at the time of deletion.
