About the Author

Bruce Johnson is a partner at ObjectSharp Consulting and a 30-year veteran of the computer industry. The first third of his career was spent doing "real work," otherwise known as coding in the UNIX world. For almost 20 years, he has been working on projects that are at the leading edge of Windows technology, from C++ through Visual Basic to C#, and from thick client applications to websites to services.

As well as having fun with building systems, Bruce has spoken hundreds of times at conferences and user groups throughout North America. He has been a Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT) for the past four years and he is a co-president of the Metro Toronto .NET User Group. He has written columns and articles for numerous magazines. While the quantity of the posts on his blog have decreased recently, the activity on his Twitter account has shown a corresponding increase. For all of this activity (or, perhaps, in spite of it), Bruce has had the privilege to be recognized as a Microsoft MVP for the past seven years.
