My history of programming goes back to the TI-99, Atari 800 and Apple II.

I attended Rutgers U. (1994-2000), started in engineering but landed in computer science.

I've been working as a computer programmer since 1998. Since 2000 I've been mainly a C# programmer.

The past 3 years I've been doing line of business application development, which I very much enjoy.

I like education very much which is why I enjoy this site and the ideas behind it. Collaborative learning is one of the most exciting thing about the internet to me.

I'm jealous of good technical writers.

My dream job is to one day work on cutting edge educational software.

comment Am really a developer or just a good googler?
i just have to say - this is interesting to me. it's a result of a fully connected and (thanks to Google) fully indexed world. I don't see anything wrong with skillfully assembling readily searchable chunks - just don't call yourself a developer because you can't fix them and you can't make them work differently. The world might need a new name for you! :)

comment What drawbacks are there to condition-based scope?
good points. but still, it makes inlining cross cutting concerns a bit cleaner, if that's what you've decided to do. effectively, it's like putting an overlay on the code, bounded by that condition. i can imagine an editor's collapsing function to make them both open and close at the same time.
