Hi and welcome to my blog.
My name is Christian Lavigne. I have been programming computers since the mid 1980’s and have been doing so professionally for the past 22 years. I worked on a variety of applications from large consumer oriented commercial applications to enterprise level web applications via small scale, one off, little COTS based solutions.
I have been working with the .NET framework since the first version came out around 2000 and got my MCSD (Microsoft Certified Solution Developer) in 2006. Although .NET is my specialty, I do spend time to learn new things and new languages outside of it. I also usually have two or three side projects at home.
Recently, I have been interested in the Internet of Things. My first college degree is in robotics and IoT feels like going back to my root. With Microsoft’s entry into the field, I could maybe leverage my skills to do something cool and contribute to it.
Starting something new is also a great opportunity to share. Hence this blog. I will try to follow it step by step and see what happens. So I ordered my first Raspberry Pi and will be exploring what I can do with it. At the very least, it could be an interesting experience!
