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

Also, I'd love to hear how you generated these results (source code and/or tools)

comment I'm tasked with leading the documentation effort for an existing, entirely undocumented, software product - what resources are there to help me?
Sounds like the job I use to work at. about 6 years of Delphi 7 code and about 200 SQL Server stored procs/functions/triggers kludged together with no documentation.

comment IDEs for dynamic languages - how far can you get?
@FrustratedWithFormsDesigner I've used Komodo. It's has much better auto-complete than any other RoR IDE I've seen... but I've seen very few IDEs for Ruby that even attempt to implement auto-complete. That said, it's better than nothing
