"Curmudgeon" (noun): a bad-tempered person, especially an old one.
Barry first told us about his very first encounter with a computer... hooked to a TV back then. We then brushed over what attracted him toward computer sciences. We discussed security and all the things we expect... or hope people will do and setting them up for success. We rewinded back to how Barry furthered and then dropped out of his computer science studies and how he ended up working as a programmer anyway. Barry finally told us the story of his 7 candidacies for Microsoft before finally being hired and finally ending up as a program manager for security.
Barry is the .NET security person at Microsoft. I've even read that you are the security curmudgeon, you'll have to tell us what that means. Barry has over 20 years of experience, specializing in C#, ASP.NET, and all aspects of .NET security. Barry has been involved in major website development, the production of numerous security related proof of concepts for Microsoft and UK government. He is also the author of "Beginning ASP.NET Secure Development" and was a frequent Microsoft MVP recipient before joining Microsoft.
