The time that I spent working at Microsoft was an unexpectedly transforming experience. The first half
of my career regularly put me and the companies I worked with in competition with Microsoft, and I was
often surrounded by anti-Microsoft stories and propaganda. However, when I heard about .NET, I
decided I wanted to know more and that the best way to do that was to learn at the source.
As I got into the technology and the company, what I found was more than a little surprising. The
.NET Framework, the C# language, ASP.
Frustration! It's one word that I've used to describe many of my development experiences.
Anyone who's worked with Visual Studio fully knows about the two-language dilemma that it
poses. At the one end of the development experience, Visual Basic makes development
relatively easy and fast, but it lacks the low-end connectivity I often need without performing
a lot of additional programming.
