I'm a software engineer working in Southern California for ESRI. I was awarded the Microsoft ASP.NET MVP on July 1st 2007, July 1st 2008, July 1st 2009, July 1st 2010 and again on July 1st 2010. This blog moved from running Community Server 2.1 to the latest version of Graffiti CMS and now using BlogEngine.NET.Can't wait to migrate to Project Orchard when they get importing right. I develop in C++ and C#, .NET 4.0 WCF RIA Services, Silverlight 4, Linq to SQL and Entity framework, objective-c and iOS.
Now using monotouch to deploy to the Apple App Store and looking forward to Windows Phone 7.
Also learned Objective-C for the fun of it, going back to this low level C with horrible garbage collection is just fun.

Al Pascual was born, bred and educated in Barcelona Spain,. He moved to England as a young lad to work as a developer in start-ups in the technology field. After seven years working in many small companies, Al moved to California with dreams of stock options to work for another start-up and enjoyed the world of low-level C and C++. After spending a few years working as a consultant, when .NET came out, Al helped companies be more productive. He became a pure web developer, believing that HTTP will rule the world and ASP.NET had nothing to do with classic ASP. Finally growing up and joining the corporate world to be part of the matrix, Al now has a wife, 3 daughters, 2 dogs, 2 rats, 1 turtle and a mortgage. He’s happy to work for a big company like ESRI as a senior software developer working mainly in Silverlight, ASP.NET and C#.
