In addition to my professional ventures, I've tried to help others in Chicago realize their entrepreneurial dreams by starting the Bootstrappers Breakfast, the Chicago Lean Startup Circle and the Chicago Semantic Web Meetup. I've also been developing OSS for over a decade, most notably helping create Spring.NET.
Lastly, I write as much as a I can. Both in my blog as well as for others. Popular topics I've written about: My Dad, Unit Testing, Software Factories, SOA, Dependency Injection, DSLs and Productivity. I also do the occasional book and watch review.
