Ty Anderson is a partner at Cogent Company in Dallas, Texas. He spends his time consulting and building software using Microsoft technologies. In addition to consulting, Ty is a Microsoft "Most Valuable Professional" and writes frequently about Microsoft products including Visual Studio Tools for Office, SharePoint, Office, and SQL Server, and his work has been published on MSDN, Devx.com, DevSource.com, Simple-Talk.com, and CIO.com. Those who know Ty best stand in awe and amazement of two things: 1) His incredible good looks and 2) his cynical and sarcastic (and sometimes offensive) behavior. Look for him at any tech conference as he will be wearing his yellow Oakland Athletics hat. Say hello, and as he might just offer to buy you pint. Ty presented sessions at 2009 Tech-Ed and was a speaker at the fall 2009 DevConnections conference. You can read his latest ramblings on all things technical at his blog: http://www.officedeveloper.net.
