Who am I?

I'm a husband, stepdad, stepgrandstepdad and Software Developer.

I'm a software developer who has been programming professionally since 1981.

Jobs:

I'm working as a Software developer at Edlun​d A/S developing IT solutions for the insurance and pension industry in Denmark using WCF and WPF.

Background:

My background goes all the way back to the stone age of computer programming

  • Started as a COBOL programmer on a mainframe computer
  • Entered the new age with 4th generation languages (ADABAS/NATURAL) which was supposed to save the world
  • Got into PC programming in Pascal, C++, Paradox and dBASE
  • Further along to client/server programming using Paradox and PowerBuilder against Oracle and Sybase
  • Took the deep dive into Embedded ANSI C programming
  • And finally as a natural progressing ended in my current position with .Net programming after a period with focus on SharePoint

What is that Black Knight stuff?

Well that's a long story, but if we meet at a conference, course or elsewhere and you buy/bring me a coke or coffee, then I'll be happy to tell that (and a lot more).
