Mark Smith

Mark started his "official" professional career working with the OS/2 product - it was a fun time filled with lots of kernel debugging and low-level x86 goodness. He had his first real exposure to Windows programming when he worked for Micrografx, a small graphics company in Texas. He worked with a small, talented team of developers providing a simulation layer for OS/2 that allowed Windows applications to run natively on Presentation Manager. Forcibly immersed in Windows, he eventually transitioned to that environment and worked on a variety of projects, including a very popular screen saver titled "AfterDark" (flying toasters ruled!).

He decided he liked the independent contractor life so began working with larger companies like Exxon/Mobil, Fidelity Investments and Verisign, designing and building distributed systems and scalable server-side infrastructure. Being in the telecom headquarters of the south, he has spent a fair amount of time in the telephony space, helping companies all over the world become TAPI-enabled through a variety of tools and code that he both sells and gives away through JULMAR.COM.

In 2007, Mark became the CTO for DevelopMentor - responsible for mapping out the technical curriculum and direction for the company. He is still involved in both authoring and teaching .NET and lately has spent a lot of time working with Silverlight, WPF, and WCF.
