We love you, Grand Rapids, MI

What a great rebuttal to being put on Newsweek’s list of “dying cities”…

Welcome

Welcome to my new blog. Here I’ll be posting ideas and presenting code from the Mobility space.

A little about me…

I am General Manager for Mobility Product Solutions at Neudesic LLC, a Microsoft Gold Managed Partner. While the company is based in Irvine, California, we have 15 offices around the country and I live in mostly-sunny Scottsdale, AZ.

As GM for Mobility I lead a national team of mobile app developers. Mobility is the only part of Neudesic’s business which is not pure-Microsoft, as we also target iOS (iPhone/iPad), Android, Windows Phone and BlackBerry.

I also stay very much involved in development. I think you have to if you want to stand a chance of staying relevant in such a fast moving field, so a lot of what I post here will be code ideas.

As such I am the Architect on the recently released Windows Azure Toolkit for iOS, and will continue to post about Mobility + Azure going forward.

Prior to Neudesic I was Lead Architect of Dell.com for 7 years, and led that team from the world of classic ASP to their current .NET platform on a single codebase in 85 countries.
