I am a software writer with about 8 years experience. I develop mostly in Visual Studio C++. Most of it is unmanged, but sometimes I mix things and write unmanaged and managed code together.
I like to program since I was a little kid and my internet was going to a library and getting books about basic. I have worked my self up from basic to delphi (object-pascal) back to pascal (for dos) to borland c++ to real c++ (unix, dos, windows) to visual studio c++ starting at version 6 and now working mostly in 2010.
I like it to find out about new techniques and development areas. Like the new c++ language, parallel programming, new operating system api's and there usage. etc. etc.
