Jim O'Neil, Senior Developer Evangelist, Microsoft Corporation
Digging for answers and discovering connections are Jim O'Neil's obsessions. He's built his fair share of applications for fun and profit, but attacking new technologies, understanding
how they work, and communicating the details back to fellow developers is what gets him going each day. Starting with Microsoft C on a 286 in the late 1980s, Jim's career has focused on standalone Microsoft technologies and interoperability with the likes
of CORBA and J2EE. He holds the Microsoft Certified Professional Developer (MCPD) Enterprise Application Developer certification and was a certified Sybase instructor. As the coauthor of two books about PowerBuilder, Jim has spoken at numerous events in the
United States, Canada, and Europe over the past 15 years. If he weren't digging around in technology, Jim would have been a classical archaeologist. That's why he takes a week off every July to help run the National Junior Classical League Convention for secondary
school students of Latin and Greek.
