I've worked as a software developer since 1981. For several years I developed embedded systems for real-time process control systems and tools for programmable controllers using 8085/8086 assembler, PLM-86 & Pascal. I started working on Windows applications in 1989 (Windows 2) on a programmable controller development tool, and have mostly developed for Windows ever since. Since 1993 I've worked in the IT side of computing - mainframe connectivity, security, email applications, directory access tools. For the last few years I've worked on several Microsoft Exchange gateway projects, cross platform security applications, and an Office email & document classification-labelling product. Although I do a lot of work in C#/.NET these days, given the choice, I still prefer C++ and its performance philosophy.
