My name is Sky Sanders and I wrassle nones and ones for fun and profit.

Some useful code that I have written and is not under NDA:

  • CassiniDev - an enhanced cassini implementation with external IP support that is also a drop-in replacement for VS WebDev.WebServer.exe
  • SharpZipLib.Silverlight - a complete (less AES cryptography) port of SharpZiplib for Silverlight 3/4 and Windows Phone 7
  • Soapi.CS : A fully relational fluent .NET, Silverlight, Windows Phone 7 and Mono client library for the Stack Exchange API
  • Soapi.JS : A fluent JavaScript client library for the Stack Exchange API
  • soapi-notify: Stay ahead of the pack with new question notification V1 release
  • http://soapi.info a suite of Stack Overflow related tools and services
  • SODDI: Fast Multi Platform Data Dump Import - Sql 2000/05/08 - SQLite - MySql
  • My CodeProject Articles
  • Google Maps API 3 Visual Studio Intellisense

I am MCSE+I which, while I have absolutely no desire to administer, goes a long way towards understanding the requirements, constraints and possible implication of the applications I design. This includes skilled installation, configuration and maintenance of IIS and SQL Server.

I have an keen eye for detail, strive for excellence but know when good enough is good enough. I move fast and clean and I can work in a team or as a one man hit squad.

I have also had extensive experience in the realm of the ASP.Net Provider Stack.

Currently my primary focus is on the Microsoft stack but 20 years of development and infrastructure experience coupled with a driving need to know and an infallible knack for finding out makes me uniquely qualified to deliver solutions for a broad spectrum of problem domains.

All code posted is tested and works on my machine. Unless otherwise noted, it is public domain and you are free to do with as you please.

You can hire me. sky.sanders at gmail.com

comment help page suggestion: indication of integral values vs real numbers
@kevin - it is not complicated at all from my perspective: the single concern is whether to declare all 'number' fields in the api as double/float to accomodate the possible values represented by 'number' or add a note to the field description indicating that there will be no freakin decimal points in the value. Should an API spec make people guess? My experience is no, an API spec should server to remove amibiguities.

comment help page suggestion: indication of integral values vs real numbers
@kevin - I think we have a disconnect here. I am not suggesting that you CHANGE the type as listed, I am suggesting that an additional hint indicating whether the field is integral or not for those not working in JS - which is MOST of us.

Jeff- stackapps.com/questions/386/… , stackapps.com/questions/409/… and more on the way - this is why it would be very useful.

comment Please supply working example URLs for each route
this is good to know. gives me confidence that my efforts at automating are not likely to be obsoleted. as an aside - your quick efforts at fixing the docs broke my generator. I had to go in and remove special case code and un-fail tests. ;-) good job.
