Hello SMS programmers. I’m responsible for the SMS SDK and Working with Jim, just starting to pull things together for the next release. If there’s anything you want to see please let us know.
I’m originally from the United Kingdom and am still in mourning about England’s dismal performance during the World Cup (this is a regular occurance, so I’m quite used to it). I’ve been writing the SMS SDK for 5 years now. Before that I wrote training courses, Usually for COM programming in a variety of languages such as C++ and Visual Basic. These days its more about C# and .NET. My first introduction to computing was through the fondly remembered, at least in the UK, Sinclair ZX81. After that I worked for the long since forgotten makers of the GEM Graphical interface, Digital Research. University Graduation brought me to Microsoft UK. A salesman there told me that most Microsoft mice we’re sold for use on GEM. How things have changed….
I’m also a keen musician’s best friend having played drums since my teens. If you’re ever in Seattle check out www.themblokes.com – My band with a curiously British twist.
With Configuration Manager (SMS v4) around the corner we’ve got a number of new SDK related features to document. I’ll be posting more details as things progress, but suffice to say, there’s a lot of exciting possibilities on the horizon…
