It is nice to be a part of a community that can answer questions and in a timely manner in most cases! If you are in the San Francisco Bay Area, let me know. I have a good deal of experience with OOP (15 years) and C# (9 years).
I spent the last 9 years working at NUMMI, in Fremont, California, as a senior programmer. This was the first joint venture between an American car manufacturer (GM) and Japan (Toyota). They are about to close their doors, so I am considering honing my skill set to do some consulting. As an electronics engineer I worked on the LEM/Apollo project, and helped to put men on the moon. I took up programming only to survive! I think it may be time to look into a new career!
