I’ve been writing software for a living since 1996, mostly for consulting firms in the DC metropolitan area. Virtually all the work has been on the Microsoft stack, from classic ASP and Visual Basic all the way through MVC3, C#, and RavenDB. I’ve rarely had other African-American colleagues at past employers, so I consider my career in technology to be something of an edge case.
I come to the field by way of an undergraduate degree in computer science from the University of Maryland.
My current employer (FEi Systems) has a social media policy for all of its employees, so I will say here that every post here is my personal opinion. They do not represent the views or opinions of FEi Systems in any way, shape or form.
