Welcome to my blog! I'm a Sr. Software Development Engineer in Seattle, WA. I've been doing C++/C#/Java development for over 18 years, but have definitely learned that there is always more to learn!

C#/.NET Little Wonders: Getting Caller Information
Once again, in this series of posts I look at the parts of the .NET Framework that may seem trivial, but can help improve your code by making it easier to write and maintain. The index of all my past little wonders posts can be found here. There are times when it is desirable to know who called the method or property you are currently executing. Some applications of this could include logging libraries, or possibly even something more advanced that may server up different objects depending on who ......

C#/.NET Little Wonders: Extension Methods Demystified
Once again, in this series of posts I look at the parts of the .NET Framework that may seem trivial, but can help improve your code by making it easier to write and maintain. The index of all my past little wonders posts can be found here. I have had the pleasure to program in a variety of programming languages throughout the years including the trifecta of C++, Java, and C#.

So very nearly finished... please stand by...
You folks have been so patient waiting for new material and I'm very grateful for that. I do have new things to write about, but wrapping up the move to Seattle has been very time-consuming! Yesterday, we finally got delivery of our goods from the moving van line and have begun the task of setting things up and assessing any damage/missing items, etc. Nothing major, just time consuming to check over everything. So again, I still think I'm on track to resume regular blogging every other week once ......

A Change of Seasons...
As some of you already know, today is my last day at Scottrade. It has been a great place to work and I'll miss all the relationships I've formed over the last 5 years immensely! Starting Monday, I will be taking a new position at Amazon.com in Seattle. It should be an exciting new adventure and I look forward to sharing more about my experiences in the days to come! I do intend to continue blogging (after the move settles down) about C# as I'm able, and may mix in some Java as well as I rekindle ......

Visual Studio Little Wonders: Quick Launch / Quick Access
Once again, in this series of posts I look at features of Visual Studio that may seem trivial, but can help improve your efficiency as a developer. The index of all my past little wonders posts can be found here. Well, my friends, this post will be a bit short because I’m in the middle of a bit of a move at the moment. But, that said, I didn’t want to let the blog go completely silent this week, so I decided to add another Little Wonder to the list for the Visual Studio IDE. How often have you wanted ......
