Project Aardvark: “I initially approached C# with a bit of trepidation. Although my bread and butter (and grades) depend on C++ and Java, anyone who knows me well knows that I’d much rather be working in one of the dynamic languages—especially Squeak Smalltalk or Ruby—than in any of the C descendents. My previous experiences with Microsoft languages (VisualBasic in all of its many varieties) did not exactly raise my expectations, and I was prepared for the worst.”

About the author.

In 2000 I co-founded Fog Creek Software, where we created lots of cool things like the FogBugz bug tracker, Trello, and Glitch. I also worked with Jeff Atwood to create Stack Overflow and served as CEO of Stack Overflow from 2010-2019. Today I serve as the chairman of the board for Stack Overflow, Glitch, and HASH.
