A few weeks ago, Richard Campbell dropped by to deliver a presentation to the Calgary .NET User Group. Since Richard is a good friend of mine, I insisted that he visit me in the suburbs of my fine city. Shortly before heading over to venue, Richard and I sat down and had a chat about his career, database development, software development, his latest creation (Strangeloop Networks), and his advice for developers entering the software industry.
