Chris Hay

Roskakori
Chris is regularly caught by his wife browsing internet sites at 2.00am in the morning. Sadly he is always looking at .NET sites rather than the haunts frequented by his peers. Chris has worked on various large projects and is specialised in C#, ASP.NET, AJAX, SQL and various other acronymns. Having always tried to keep at the front of the technology curve, i guess it is time to share that knowledge around a little. Simple tip, never mention Silverlight infront of him (if you are in a hurry). You can catch him on his blog http://silverlightuk.blogspot.com [more - bio & sessions]
