Hi Pete,

Could you tell us a little about yourself? Your experience, etc. that is applicable to being able to write this book.

Thanks,
KevDev

My "standard" bio is:

"Pete Goodliffe is an expert software developer who never stays at the same place in the software food chain; he's worked in numerous languages on diverse projects. He also has extensive experience in teaching and mentoring programmers, and writes the regular "Professionalism in Programming" column for ACCU's C Vu magazine (www.accu.org). Pete enjoys writing excellent, bug-free code, so he can spend more time having fun with his kids."

I'm always dubious of glib claims like "expert programmer" which is, frankly, meaningless, but it keeps PR guys happy!

I've got more than 10 years experience in the software industry, and have written production code in C, C++, Java (hey - I worked on a JVM years ago) and C#. I've worked on operating systems, desktop applications, embedded devices, and currently write software for DJ products (fun!)

I'm a regular software development columnist, programming tutor, and conference speaker (for example, I'm keynote at this year's ACCU conference (www.accu.org/conference).

I love playing keyboards. I've got three kids. And very little spare time.

I sense repetition around here
