Jeff Atwood

http://www.codinghorror.com/blog/

I live in Berkeley, CA with my wife, two cats, and a whole lot of computers. I was weaned as a software developer on various implementations of Microsoft's BASIC in the 80's, starting with my first microcomputer, the Texas Instruments TI-99/4a. I continued on the PC with Visual Basic 3.0 and Windows 3.1 in the early 90's, although I also spent significant time writing Pascal code in the first versions of Delphi. I am now quite comfortable in VB.NET or C#, despite the evils of case sensitivity. I consider myself a reasonably experienced Windows software developer with a particular interest in the human side of software development, as represented in my recommended developer reading list. Computers are fascinating machines, but they're mostly a reflection of the people using them. In the art of software development, studying code isn't enough: you have to study the people behind the software, too.

Daniel Egan

http://TheSociableGeek.com

Originally from Chicago Daniel moved to California in the early 90's right when the Bulls were scorching the NBA. He worked in a few different industries before finding his niche in the technology sector. Before joining Microsoft, Daniel held a variety of positions in the information technology and engineering fields. At his company, Odyssey Consulting Group, he served as Chief Architect and CEO. OCG did custom application development for Mid-Range companies in Southern California. He was fortunate enough to be a Microsoft Regional Director, a Microsoft MVP – ASP/ASP.Net , a Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT) and an Microsoft Certified Solution Developer, as well as a .Net Insider for the Southern California Region. He has always been active in the developer community and was the Co-Founder of the SoCalDotNet Developers Group. In addition, he also had the unique opportunity to serve as President of INETA, the international .Net association and enjoyed my time there immensely. When not working on technical stuff, you can find Daniel running around SoCal trying to bring down my marathon times (don’t ask) or shooting away with my Cannon trying to get that “perfect” shot.

James Johnson, a Microsoft MVP, is the Founder and President of the Inland Empire .NET User’s Group, and has fondly watched it grow from a twice a month, early Saturday morning group of five in 2003, to a robust and rambunctious gathering of all types and sizes of .NET developers. In his off-time from running the user group, James is a husband and dad, works with ComponentOne as their Western Region Technical Evangelist, digs deep into cutting edge technologies (often with some spectacular disasters) and spreads the word about the latest and greatest bits, getting people excited about .NET. He tries to blog as often as he can, but usually gets distracted by EF, LINQ, MVC, ASP, SQL, XML, and most other types of acronyms. James loves to present, using a rather unique presentation style combining a slight irreverence with a lot of back and forth interaction of a “hands-on, this is how I skinned my knuckles, you don’t do the same” style and approach. You can keep up with him at www.duringlunch.com, or on Twitter at @latringo.

Julien Wetterwald is Director of Engineering at kaChing, where he is leading the Trading Team. He strongly believes that just like wine, you want your code to age well. His recipe to success includes, but isn't limited to, static typing, pure functions, control flow abstraction, French oak barrel, and high test coverage. Roses are red, violets are blue; and well-typed programs never go wrong.
