I have been working with SharePoint since 2001, mostly developing business applications that can play by its rules. I have also developed a number of ASP.NET applications, frameworks, and components, and have been using the .NET Framework since 1.1 and Visual Studio since it was called Visual Interdev. I am familiar with several languages, but these days I stay current with them only to the point where I am able to translate them into C#. All of my professional software development has been intended for various branches of the DoD, primarily the Navy. Although being a government contractor has sharpened my pass office preparedness and my appreciation for backward compatibility, I am always grateful for remote access opportunities.
