Ok if you got here you must be really bored but you are here so I will tell you a little about myself. I am a geek of long standing, I have always liked technology from the days of taking apart things as a kid or playing with my TRS 80 16k Color computer. I live in the inland part of San Diego’s north county.
I also helped start SoCal Code Camp where they enable the SoCal technical community to present on topics of interests letting geeks of all stripes in SoCal interact and learn from each other. I also am the local SoCal INETA membership mentor where I try and help local user groups communicate and support the local community.
I have been an Evangelist at Microsoft in Southern California, driving the awareness and advocating Microsoft development technologies. I have been a product manger for a Open source startup and many other jobs in software world. I am an experienced developer, teacher/trainer and a part-time instructor at University of California San Diego. Over my career I have worked on software and system architecture, code, development and infrastructure reviews and analysis of several Fortune 500 companies for scalability, security, performance and standards & practices. I have also been an author, having written Microsoft Official Curriculum and has authored several published magazine articles.
Prior to my time in technology I was an electronic technician in the United States Navy.
I will do the normal and say some day I will put more information here for now go to woodyp.info for more information [in reality I will not add anything else 😉].
