About ADO.NET, LINQ, and other fun .NET technology

Erick Thompson, born and raised in rural Alberta, came to the beautiful Puget Sound area in 1995 to study at the University of Washington. Initially a bio-chemistry major at the UW, he ended up studying discrete math and algorithms, along with just enough statistics to get into trouble. Naturally enough, this lead to working as computer programming at a US-Asian policy think tank (National Bureau of Asian Research), where he worked for 11 years on a number of projects across a wide variety of technologies, with a focus on database technologies. His non-computer interests are as wide ranging as his culinary tastes, and at the moment run from fishing and hiking to pinball and martinis.
