John Brinnand

I consider myself a pragmatic software architect – someone who finds that adaptive design appears in the friction between ideas and implementation, vision and application, abstraction and ground reality. I have found that - contrary to expectation - velocity comes from this process of emergent design. Consequently I use design patterns, TDD, the cloud and Agile methodologies as the means to develop and deploy systems.

Your SAN vendor is generally clueless on database and most likely suggested a configuration with absolutely horrible performance. Is all of this expensive? Not if you have the right tools.

Matt Harrington

http://blogs.msdn.com/b/matt-harrington

Hi, I'm Matt Harrington, a Developer Evangelist for Microsoft in San Francisco and Silicon Valley. Before I joined Microsoft in 2011, I was active in the local open source community. I discovered functional programming through Scala, which I enjoyed very much. At a Silicon Valley Code Camp in 2008, I had a break in my schedule and decided to attend a talk on F# by Tim Ng of Microsoft. At that time, I didn't even own a Windows computer and had only heard faint whispers about F#. By the end of Tim's talk, I was sold. F# really clicked with me. I stopped what I was doing, switched my home machine from Solaris to Windows, and dove into F# and .NET. I soon learned that to really become an expert in .NET, you have to know C#, which I then picked up and enjoyed just as much. I tossed VB.NET in for good measure. After joining Microsoft, I expanded on the C++ skills I used in my interest in scientific computing.
