About the Author
Eric Lippert is a principal software design engineer at Microsoft. He has been working full time in the developer division since 1996, where he assisted with the design and implementation of VBScript, JScript, JScript .NET, Windows Script Host, Visual Studio Tools for Office and C#. Though he maintaines a technical blog about the design, implementation and use of programming languages, he has occasionally delved into other interests such as ancient Greek politics, music theory, and relationship advice. When he is not designing and implementing programming languages he can be found writing and editing technical books, sailing small craft, playing the piano, attending live theater, and collecting books about the life and works of J.R.R. Tolkien. He lives in Seattle with his wife Leah and cat, Minerva.
Worth noting, Eric has one of the most popular developer blogs in the Microsoft programming community.
