I've been developing software of all shapes and sizes using Microsoft technologies for over 20 years now.

The wonder of our profession is that we continue to learn something new every day.

Current obsession : Simple Math Fraction Calculators for my kid's school maths (and prime number generation for Project Euler ;-)

comment I'm so jealous of middle-aged developers. Are we unlucky?
+1 - As offensive as DeadMG's argument may seem, there is much truth in it ... languages have evolved such that productivity (dev deadlines, ease of maintenance etc) are much improved over doing it in ASM or C. I learned the hard way 12 years ago ... I was a C dinosaur and got left in the dust by VB6 and Java. I quickly learned that to in order to earn a living, I needed to regard software as a tool to achieve business objectives, and not the other way round.
