Let the games begin.

So let's get this party started. I've been using a firewalled
corporate blog for a while, but decided it's finally time to get
something publicly-accessible up and running.

About Me

I'm your basic mid-30s software geek, currently working with .NET (primarily WinForms) and keeping busy at work. I'm the proud father of a 4-year old girl, Allie, and try to spend as much time as possible with her and my wife, Michelle, when I'm not working. For fun, I play soccer weekly (when my knee will let me), coach a youth soccer team, and we're season-ticket holders for the Colorado Rapids. I'm also a musician, primarily keyboards and drums, and I enjoy home recording as a hobby.

I've been doing software development in one fashion or another for nearly 13 years now, with forays into a number of languages along the way. I was a 6-time Microsoft MVP for Visual FoxPro and also wrote a monthly "Best Practices" column. Later, my development focus changed over to Java around 2000 and then to .NET in early 2003. I specialize in reusable components, framework
development, and distributed software architecture.

About This Blog

So, what can you expect to find here? Well, if you read the two paragraphs above, it should be pretty easy to guess. A wide variety of technical ramblings, some code, miscellanous family/personal shout-outs, maybe the occasional book/music/movie review, and even a rant now and then. If any of these aren't your cup of tea, you'll be glad to note that you can view/subscribe-to the web log entries by category.

As far as frequency goes... we'll play that by ear. It'll probably be several a day sometimes, other times once a week, but one thing's certain -- it'll be irregular.

Want to send me email about something? Use the Contact page, or jeff@THE-TRASHdonnici.com (just take out THE-TRASH for it to work).
