I am a developer working primarily in .NET but also several other languages. I like to write scripts and automate as much as possible. I think it's incredibly important to want to continue learning throughout your career in order to improve.
I originally started professional software development using ASP.NET (webforms). I then switched jobs and worked almost exclusively in ColdFusion. It gave me the chance to get to know MVC a lot more through the Mach-II framework - an implementation of MVC for Coldfusion. When ASP.NET MVC came out, convinced our employers to migrate due to a wider availability of software engineers (it was incredibly difficult to get good ColdFusion developers!). When it came to picking up ASP.NET MVC, I felt I had a much stronger advantage than if I had continued using 'classic' ASP.NET webforms.
I answered more questions in the first two months on here, than I did in five years at Experts Exchange, and I enjoy the fact that stackoverflow is more community based.
Initially spurred on by the challenge of "doing better than Jonathon Bolster", I found that helping out is extremely enjoyable and helping people of all technical skill levels is great fun.
