I'm interested in high-quality solutions to tough problems. I co-founded <a href="http://encodo.com">Encodo Systems AG</a> almost a dozen years ago. My focus has always been on generalization and DRY using metadata and common libraries. I've written four frameworks over the years, in C#, C++, Delphi and PHP.</div> Content <div>In addition to the links above, I've also got content online in the following places: <ul> <a
