Started programming at the age of 10 on my first computer, the mighty Commodore64.
I started out with Basic and later moved on to Asm/Machine code (6510).
I was also active in the demo scene as a graphics artist on the C64 period.
Active in demo groups as Noice and Fairlight.
My professional career started 1999 as a VB6 and ASP3 developer / teacher.
Once C# was released I dropped VB and have been doing C# ever since.
Aspect oriented programming
An interest which lead me to develop NAspect (www.puzzleframework.com)
Not so much the actual mapping theories, that’s more Mats department, personally I’m more interested in the infrastructure that is needed to make an O/R mapper work.
(see also DMM, a must read article by Mats)
Co-developer of NPersist (www.puzzleframework.com)
I’ve got a serious fetish for parsing (Don’t ask me why, I just do)
Parser related projects I’m working on:
- SyntaxBox – Syntax highlighting windows forms control, based on a generic parser that can highlight pretty much any language. (www.puzzleframework.com)
- NPath – Domain query language, parsing and in mem execution engine. (www.puzzleframework.com)
- My Lisp – .NET based Lisp hybrid with OOP support and .NET integration.
Graphics related programming
I’ve always been a very visual person, I like to get a visual feedback on what I’m doing.
Therefore I’ve always liked graphics programming, both 2D and 3D.
Demos in the past and windows forms controls today.
Evolution / Genetic Algorithms / Genetic Programming
Just because natural selection is so cool that you are able to read this..
