Who Am I

My name is Scott Ogden and I am a professional C#\ASP.NET developer. I graduated from Florida State University in 1997 with a Bachelors Degree in Management Information Systems. After graduation, I moved back to Lakeland, FL with my wife and newborn baby and began my IT career with a small healthcare company in Lakeland.

My Past

The first 7 years of my career were spent working in the Visual Foxpro world which had its advantages and disadvantages. The biggest advantage was that database functionality was built into the Foxpro language. There was no need to access an external database library like ADO or DAO. As the company grew though we were forced to move to an enterprise level database (Oracle) to gain the speed and reliablity that Foxpro could not provide. It was during this time that I learned about tuning SQL statements and managing Oracle 8i databases.

My Present

For the past two years I have been working in the .NET environment specifically with C#. I've been involved in designing\coding multithreaded WinForms applications as well as ASP.NET web applications.
