About the Author

Stephen Ritchie is a software development consultant with Excella Consulting in the Washington, D.C. area. His passion for following best practices dates back to chemistry lab and his often maniacal desire to get things absolutely, precisely right. The intervening years developing software have taught him to value experience, admire practical know-how, keep experimenting, and appreciate the difference between good-enough and missed-it-by-that-much. Today, Stephen is the .NET best practices steward at Excella Consulting, working with .NET project teams to facilitate the sorting out of the helpful from the unhelpful, the practical from the impractical, and the sounds-good from the it-really-is-good software development practices and principles.
