Scott Dorman Microsoft MVP, Software Architect, Developer, Author



I am a Microsoft C# MVP, author, speaker, blogger, and creator of WP Requests and WinMetro Requests.

I've been involved with computers in one way or another for as long as I can remember, but started professionally in 1993. Although my primary focus right now is commercial software applications, I prefer building infrastructure components, reusable shared libraries and helping companies define, develop and automate process standards and guidelines.
