G. Andrew Duthie, aka devhammer, is the founder and chief consultant for Devhammer Enterprises. Andrew is a software developer, trainer, writer, and consultant with more than 15 years of industry experience, including nearly 10 years as a Technical Evangelist for Microsoft's Mid-Atlantic States district, where he provided support and education for developers working with the Microsoft development platform. In addition to his work with Microsoft, Andrew is the author of several books on ASP.NET and Web development, and has spoken at numerous industry conferences from VSLive! and ASP.NET Connections to Microsoft's Professional Developer Conference (PDC) and Tech-Ed. Andrew has been participating in the user group community since way back in 1997, when one of his co-workers dragged him out to the Internet Developers User Group in Tyson's Corner, VA, and he's been hooked ever since.
Andrew is also the creator and developer of Community Megaphone, a site designed for promoting and finding developer community events.
In addition to his work in software development, Andrew has enjoyed some recent forays into the world of hardware experimentation, including developing for Kinect and .NET Gadgeteer, using his newly formed hardware chops to do everything from blinking LEDs and making strange noises to flying a remote control helicopter with just his hands.
