Richard took us from the first time he burned his fingers with a soldering iron, all the way to the book "The History of .NET" he is currently writing. We started talking hardware, tinkering and making money on the side. Then Richard explained how he slowly incorporated software into his hardware-heavy jobs. Fast forward a few years, we talked selling the "value" to customers and the ROI of software. Richard told us about how he got involved with Microsoft. And finally, we talked about the Humanitarian Toolbox.
Richard started playing with microcomputers in 1977 at the age of 10 and he's really never done anything else since. For years he's served as a consultant, providing advice on architecture, scaling systems and mentoring development teams. He is a Microsoft Regional Director and is recognized as a Microsoft MVP for ASP.NET development. Among many other things, Richard is the co-host of the legendary DOT NET Rocks podcast and the host of the RunAs Radio podcast. He founded the Humanitarian Toolbox and the DevIntersection group of conferences.
