About the Author
Mike Blaszczak lobbied his high-school principle until he was allowed to graduate six months early. In 1988, he moved to Hartford, Connecticut and attended the University of Hartford part-time. Disgruntled by the lack of an advanced placement curriculum at the school, he quit taking classes and concentrated on working hard and making money. After working - and traveling extensively - for a small consulting firm in Blooomfield, Connecticut, he took a position in Microsoft's Consulting Services in March of 1992. In November of 1993, Mike joined the development team, working on the Microsoft Foundation Classes in Redmond, Washington. Mike accepted a promotion (which is Latin for 'lateral move') to Program Manager and was, for a time, responsible for managing the development, documentation and delivery of the Microsoft Foundation Classes and the C Run-time Libraries. Mike decided that playing with cards was much more fun than playing with schedules, so he laterally removed himself back to the development team. Mike has previously been published in Byte Magazine, Microsoft Systems Journal, Computer Buyer's World Magazine and in books published by Que and Microsoft Press. Mike does presentations wherever they'll invite him back. He likes referring to himself in third-person.
Mike is currently responsible for telling all of his friends about the rules in ice hockey, saving up money to buy another vowel for his last name, getting nicer strings for his bass guitar and completing a variety of design and development tasks relating to MFC.
