Stan Schultes is VBNetExpert and a Microsoft MVP, author, speaker and corporate developer. I currently live and work in Sarasota, Florida where I'm very active in the Microsoft developer community. I speak regularly at regional developer events like Microsoft product launches, Microsoft DevDays, Code Camps and at numerous developer group meetings throughout Florida. I also write regularly on Microsoft .NET development topics, I've published recently in MSDN Online and I'm a former contributing editor and columnist at Visual Studio Magazine.
I specialize in developing and mentoring with tools like DotNetNuke, and I'm currently working with, writing and speaking about current and next-gen Microsoft tools and platforms: Visual Studio 2005, VS2005 Team System, SQL Server 2005, Patterns & Practices Software Factories, Visual Studio 2008 (Orcas), and Windows Vista. It's all new, so watch for upcoming articles on the new technologies.
My article index is always available - my past articles delve into a wide variety of subjects important during the VB6 and .NET v1 eras. My current and future articles will cover a broader variety of topics, and I've finally rebooted my blog.
I have a regular, full time job where I practice my passion for development using .NET tools. One of my current projects is developing a suite of engineering design automation tools for custom product development, where the design processes are being progressively automated.
My speaking and writing hobbies are where I really learn how to apply the tools, which directly benefits my “real” development efforts at work. Plus for me, teaching others is a very effective way of learning so I get double-duty. I'm so involved in the developer community because it's what I love to do, not how I make my living.
This site uses the open-source DotNetNuke portal platform (currently DNN v4.8). Check my DNN downloads page for overview material (from the DNN v2&3 days), and read a column I wrote about developing custom modules for DNN v1. I expect DNN to help me with my content management chores so I can focus on my technical content. And you never know, I might even write a little about the implementation process.
I'd like to take the opportunity to thank all of you who have given me encouragement, ideas, and help over the years. You know who you are. Everyone else, please let me know what you think.
