About John Fuex

John Fuex has been working in software development professionally for over 20 years in Austin, Texas.  Although he still keeps his hands dirty in code as much as possible, he has spent much of the last decade managing a software development organization that included product development, consulting, testing and technical writing.

Specializing in Microsoft development and database platforms, he has created countless web, desktop and client-server applications. John’s current tool of choice is ASP.NET which he has worked with since it was introduced as what is now wistfully known as ASP classic. Despite a preference for C# and advanced skills with MS SQL Server, he remains an unabashed apologist of maligned and misunderstood technologies including MS Access and Visual Basic.

In his current role managing a development team at a “Big 4” consulting firm, he enjoys most the opportunity to mentor other programmers and encourage them to reach the pinnacle of their potential. In many ways he finds it more rewarding to build a programmer than a program.

John holds an aging and hopelessly expired MCSD certification that he plans to update “one of these days,” an MCTS in SQL Server 2008,  is a Certified Document Imaging Archi-tech (CDIA), and has a BS in Information Technology degree from the University of Massachusetts. He also holds a Project Management Professional (PMP) certification.

He has published two study guides for the MCSD Visual Basic certification exams and several articles in trade journals specializing in technology for litigators.
