None currently. I am just a hobbyist right now.

I currently have no team.

 

·        What kind of apps do you most commonly build?

I like to make user controls on the visual side. I like games and go deep into paint functions.

 

·        What’s the most interesting app you’ve ever built?

I made a game for a friend once. It was sort of a hang man game. It used WPF and it was built to be run on a TV screen so scale was a big concern. We like to play it at his house every now and then.

 

·        Please tell us about an app that you’re working on at the moment.

Currently just editing my codeplex page.

WPF, ASP.Net, sometimes SQL. Mostly if it uses any amount of VB code, I am in.

 

·        What are some of your favorite VB features?

Intellisense, intellisense, intellisense. Every once in a while I use intellisense to learn a new command. I even love adding it to my user controls.

 

·        What do you like most about VB as a programming language?

It is just so simple to me. It just makes sense to me.
