Started in the 80's with COBOL mainframe programming for a big bank.

Spent the 90's consulting with the big boys (Accenture) and a dot com bomb. Did lots of Technical Architecture recommendations in my time. Did CORBA when it was cool, Java when it was new, and Microsoft before it was popular.

I spend my time now as the Systems Architecture Manager for a captive automotive finance company. I still keep my hands dirty.

I've also started a side concern developing software to help bridge the gap between TFS and the real world.

comment Why the scorn for COBOL?
This also hearkens back to the days of no interactive debugger. In the IBM world we called that type of debuging IEHEYBALL and IEBTHUMB.
