I'm Stuart Dobson, a Microsoft .NET developer in Melbourne, Australia. I specialise in C#, .NET, and Azure, with a passion for quality and innovation.
I started coding in high school when I made a version of Breakout in Blitz Basic on the Amiga. I also made a maths program for kids, a renewable energy catalogue (back then we thought renewable energy was going to be big), and a sandwich simulator.
I built actionpics.net which is a site for photographers to securely sell their photos. It uses some cool Azure Storage stuff to keep the images secure, and has become a playground for me to practice awesome new cloud development techniques.
I also like to think about technology's implications on society. Back in 2009 I wrote about how one day the big tech companies would gather enough data to manipulate us politically, and one commenter remarked that I was giving social media too much credit.
