My name is Pete Shearer. I have been a professional software developer with experience dating back to 1998. I started working with VBA, then VB6 – earning my MCSD, on to classic ASP with VBScript, and now C#, ASP.Net. I mostly use Sql Server for back end development (though this blog is hosted using MySql – hey, I’m practical).
I’ve worked for banks, hospitals, consulting companies, a small software development company, health care services companies, an enterprise mobile services company, and now for myself.
Technologies that I’m working with professionally currently include ASP.Net MVC, Web Api, Git, jQuery, jQuery UI, Sql Server, Sql Server Reporting Services, Sql Server Integration Services, as well as HTML and CSS (naturally – I am not a drag-and-drop developer). I am also doing iOS mobile contracting work and have apps in the iOS App Store, Google Play Store, and Windows Phone App store.
Yes, my blog title is a blatant ripoff of Joel on Software, but I consider it more of an homage!

I am married, have 3 kids, and live in Ohio. GO BUCKS!!!
