Bill Evjen, Microsoft MVP is an active proponent of .NET Technologies and community - based learning initiatives for .NET. He has been actively involved with .NET since the first bits were released in 2000. In the same year, Bill founded the St. Louis .NET User Group ( www.stlnet.org ), one of the world ’ s first such groups. Bill is also the founder and former executive director of the International .NET Association ( www.ineta.org ), which represents more than 450,000 members worldwide. Based in St. Louis, Missouri, Bill is an acclaimed author (more than 15 books to date) and speaker on ASP.NET and SML Web services.

Morgan Skinner began his computing career at a young age on the Sinclair ZX80 at school, where he was underwhelmed by some code a teacher had written and so began programming in assembly language. Since then he ’ s used all sorts of languages and platforms, including VAX Macro Assembler, Pascal, Modula2, Smalltalk, X86 assembly language, PowerBuilder, C/C++, VB, and currently C# (of course). He ’ s been programming in .NET since the PDC release in 2000, and liked it so much he joined Microsoft in 2001. He now works in premier support for developers and spends most of his time assisting customers with C#. You can reach Morgan at www.morganskinner.com.

Jay Glynn started writing software nearly 20 years ago, writing applications for the PICK operating system using PICK basic. Since then, he has created software using Paradox PAL and Object PAL, Delphi, VBA, Visual Basic, C, C++, Java, and of course, C#. He is currently a project coordinator and architect for a large financial services company in Nashville, Tennessee, working on software for the TabletPC platform. You can contact Jay at jlsglynn@hotmail.com.

Karli Watson is a freelance author and a technical consultant of 3form Ltd ( www.3form.net ) and Boost .net, and an associate technologist at Content Master ( www.contentmaster.com ). He started out with the intention of becoming a world - famous nanotechnologist, so perhaps one day you might recognize his name as he receives a Nobel Prize. For now, though, Karli ’ s main academic interest is the .NET Framework, and all the boxes of tricks it contains. A snowboarding enthusiast, Karli also loves cooking, spends far too much time playing Anarchy Online and EVE, and wishes he had a cat. As yet, nobody has seen fit to publish Karli ’ s first novel, but the rejection letters make an attractive pile. If he ever puts anything up there, you can visit Karli online at http://www.karliwatson.com.
