Simon Painter
I'm currently a Senior Software Engineer at EuroFins Scientific, and I've been working as a .NET developer for over 12 years now in a variety of industries including government, retail and manufacturing. But, as a coder, I've been playing with making computers do whatever my crazed imagination could devise since I was old enough to read my Dad's copy of the ZX Spectrum BASIC coders manual.

I've been speaking about Functional C# at various user groups and conferences around the UK and USA, and am particular interested in seeing just how far we can push the capabilities of C#.

When I'm not coding, or running after my two small children, I have been known to enjoy the classic series of Doctor Who, Fighting Fantasy Gamebooks, Cryptic Crosswords, and rather more coffee than is probably good for me.
