Age: 40

I am a software developer by trade but like many programmers it is also a hobby. My first program was written on a Commodore 64. In college I wrote C++, Fortran and a touch of Pascal.

I started my professional career doing web development before the bubble using ASP, PERL, Java and SQL. Over the years I have spent a lot of time programming for the web and the desktop.

Today I specialize in the Microsoft development stack. I currently utilize C#, SQL Server, ASP.Net, ASP.Net MVC, Silverlight, Javascript/CSS/HTML/jQuery. I also have recent experience with WPF/XAML, WCF, Silverlight, NUnit and WinForms.

Besides my Microsoft work life I use Mac at home and play with Cocoa, Ruby on Rails and MySQL. I enjoy travel and baseball. My wife and I have added the two hobbies together, and have seen games at 8 MLB parks, 1 spring training park and 3 minor league parks.

comment How do I compress a Json result from ASP.NET MVC with IIS 7.5
This is also a nice approach in that compressing small messages can cost more in compress/decompress that they would have in vanilla transmission of the data. Setting gzip for all JSON downloads in an application can actually cost time for these smaller messages, so decorating only large(r) downloads has its advantages.
