Hello there! My name's Jordan Earls and I'm a programmer. Recently, I've been doing almost exclusively work in .Net with C#, a bit of raw IL, and in some cases a hefty serving of code generating T4(it's the meta-future!). Sometimes I do a bit of embedded/electronic work with C and C++(http://mbed.org rocks, btw). And finally, I have at least some competence in Ruby, Delphi, and Javascript.

I currently work for PreEmptive Solutions on the Dotfuscator team and troll the dotfuscator tag on occasion.

Most of my personal projects are open source and BSD licensed. The majority of them are at bitbucket with the rest of them being listed on github

Also, you can follow me on the twitters @earlzdotnet
