Who is Derek Smyth?


So your wondering who I am. Well I'm a software developer working for an engineering company in Glasgow, Scotland. I'm the only developer in the building which is both a bit annoying, because there's no one to bounce idea's off of, and it's also quite good because I make all the decisions.

I'm a fully qualified developer with an honours degree, MCSD, and a XML certification to my name, along with plenty of experience. So I like to think I know what I'm doing.

I tend to use my blog as a means to document techniques or to record workarounds to problems I or other people have. Its a good reference. I also reply with solutions to question in posts from the MSDN forum so expect some VBA and XML from time to time.

Really hope my blog becomes useful to you.
