My name is Justin Weinberg. Shortly after learning to walk I was learning to program, so I guess I was born an “enthusiast.” (geek is such a harsh word)). I’m a principle consultant with Sogeti’s Microsoft practice in Dallas. If you haven’t heard of Sogeti, it’s a great company brimming with talent. In fact it was recently awarded “Enterprise Partner of the Year” by Microsoft.
Before Sogeti I was the chief software architect for a baggage handling company with installations in San Francisco, Seattle, Orlando, and everywhere in between. So yes, I may be responsible for you loosing your luggage, but I’d rather think I’m to blame for the times your luggage arrived safe and sound!
Aside from my work, the other great joy in my life is my family. My wife and two (oh my three!) boys are a great source of strength and inspiration for me.
What else? I attended Carnegie Mellon in Pittsburgh, PA, which has to have the coolest school colors ever – the Tartan Plaid. I’ve been spending a lot of time recently working with Silverlight and have been thoroughly enjoying it. At my current assignment I have quite a commute and listen to a lot of .NET podcasts. Some of the lesser known ones I enjoy are Herding Code, Deep Fried Bytes, and SE Radio.
I also attend a number of local user groups including the Dallas ASP.NET user group, the Dallas XAML user group, the North Dallas .NET user group, Sogeti’s internal user groups, and Sogeti’s Toastmaster group.
