Well, what should I say?

"Fun is fun, but done is done"

Hey , what’s up? My name is Alex and I’m a C# developer. Yeah, I’m a C# developer and I've used C# for over 5 years starting since I was 19. Now I perfectly realize what happened, but at that time I didn’t.

First time I tried C# with my friend. We were talking about the internet technologies as he mentioned he'd recently tried C#. He offered to try it to me. But I had some concerns. I hesitated. I didn’t know what to do since there had been bad gossips about the C# language as well as about .NET Framework. But he told me what an amazing programming language C# was and is and I've bowed to his pressure. I don't remember exactly what I built; it seemed it was kind of a simple application that printed out "Hello world!" to the console. It was awfully enjoyable and fun, we all had a blast and laughed and smiled and nothing could stop it...

It went on and on and on. Little by little, day by day… and suddenly I realized I couldn’t stop. Since I'd already tried creating a simple C# application, I was up to try something more difficult. And I tried creating a CMS. Now I can understand how dire it was! But back then not. Finally I'd come to the point where I dreamed for making my own CMS.

A girlfriend of mine broke up with me as she learned I'd become a C# developer. Yet I couldn’t stop and I risked building my first mini framework. In C#. Those were incredible days, however it was also a risky situation. My friends no longer wanted to see me… Everyone turned a blind eye to me.

Soon after I hooked up with a few other C# developers and we'd hit it off immediately. Usually we'd meet at one’s of them house, lock up a doors and spend time building a bunch of C# applications in ASP.NET MVC, WPF and WCF… Occasionally we'd test the new libraries such as NUnit, Rhino Mocks, ExtJS.NET, JSON.NET, RSignal... Oh, God, RSignal!

Now I’m in my thirties and I've become a full-fledged C# developer. Sometimes I try dealing with this situation or getting over it, but so far it hasn't panned out. Thus I long for any freelance jobs or something that'll allow me to write a little bit of C# code. Just a tiny bit.

P.S. Why are you so serious? ☺
