Brian Sullivan is a senior consultant for Improving Enterprises in Dallas. He got his start in programming maintaining legacy mainframe applications in COBOL at a large trucking company, but quickly realized he needed to find a more productive environment in order to stay sane. He jumped at the opportunity to help transition some of those COBOL applications to .NET, and he hasn’t looked back since. He has been working with Microsoft technologies for about 7 years, and is interested in increasing the exposure of agile techniques and methodologies in the Microsoft developer community. Brian is recipient of the Microsoft MVP award in ASP.NET and a graduate of Harding University.
