I’m sure this post will quickly skyrocket to the top of the ‘most viewed’ list, so I wont keep anyone waiting!
My name is Chris Peterson, and I started working for Doug with Alagad 4 weeks ago as a full time contract programmer. My first day on the job I dove head first into a Model-Glue / Coldspring / Transfer clustered application and haven’t looked back since. It’s great to be working with other people who get excited as much as I do about event gateways, autowired remote proxies, and event construction.
I have been a computer junkie all my life, in 4th grade I was learning BASIC, Logo, and GRAPHICS programming. We had a commodore 64 and a PC with a 286 SX processor, and I wrote hundreds of program in BASIC to do animation and other fun stuff. I am a hardware geek, I love all things enterprise, love learning new coding languages, and make cool stuff on the lathe. After being the head line cook at a small town resturant, I worked for 3 years as a contract sysadmin, 8 years as a programmer for a transportation company, and now I am here with the other Alagadians (and couldn’t be happier). Look forward to iSeries, MS SQL, hardware, and of course Coldfusion posts down the road from me.
I am currently going to school part time, working on a dual BS in Biometric Security and CIS with a programming focus.
