I have personally used forever: Visual Studio since 2005 version, SQL server since year 2005, and lots of other microsoft software.
Iam a microsoft power/advanced IT user i want to get the most out of my microsoft experience always experimenting and coming up with new ideas.
I even have used linux to some degree because of some programs capabilities with microsoft software. But i stick mostly with windows for most of my scenarios. I have a IC3 certification and i wish to take my NET+ certification. I currently work at Garrard County School systems and my boss has me program almost every component of the whole school system down to security components. In addition, I have an associates degree and i have a little bit to go to have a bachelors.
Moreover, I really like xna development but iam still a beginner in game/simulation development but its my passion to become a dedicated developer in that area/kinect for pc in future/some now.
