Jacob J. Sanford
began his career in, of all things, accounting and auditing. He graduated from Florida State University in 1997 with BS degrees in Accounting and Finance, which made him eligible to sit for the CPA exam. Although he realized in college that his interests lie more in computers and technology, he decided he would give accounting a chance. It didn t last. He had been dabbling in HTML and VBA when he took a job at a private software company and met co–author David Drinkwine, who introduced him to the wonders of classic ASP. From there, he began learning as much as he could about all kinds of Web application development. This took him down the paths of ColdFusion, PHP, PhotoShop, CSS, XML, and finally ASP.NET (starting with the 1.0 and 1.1 releases). He has been using ASP.NET (VB and C# but mostly C#) for the last four or five years. He has worked at several State of Florida agencies and in that capacity found a fondness for pure CSS design and accessibility considerations. Most recently, he has started focusing on new technologies and tools such as Microsoft Silverlight and Visual Studio 2008.
Jacob is currently a senior consultant with Captar´e Consulting, LLC, and is the founding leader of the Tallahassee SharePoint Experts Exchange for Developers (SPEED). He is also a regular presenter at regional .NET Code Camps and at local .NET User Group meetings and is the author of
Professional ASP.NET 2.0 Design
(Wrox, 2007).
Jacob has received his Microsoft Certified Professional Developer (MCPD) certification as a Web Developer (Visual Studio 2005). He plans to upgrade his credentials to Visual Studio 2008 and the .NET 3.6 Framework as the certification exams become available.
