William "Scott" Baker
I am a developer using the Microsoft .NET Framework preparing for the Microsoft certification. The way I figure it, there can be no better way to learn new material than to write about it. I have to research it, study it and know it before I can sit down and churn out something that someone else can understand -- or at least that is my hope.
I am also an Aircraft Maintenance Technician for Delta Air Lines. But that's just my day job.
- I am intrigued by how everything works.
- I consider myself to be a "Maker" in the Make Magazine sort of way. I can improve something to the point that it doesn't work at all - just ask my wife.
- I believe that open source books have the potential to be fantastic learning tools - imagine if everyone who really knew about a topic wrote the encyclopedia article for it.
- I love to snowboard. I'm not very good at it, but I love it anyway. I live in the Puget Sound area in a town called Bonney Lake - I'm an hour west of Crystal Mountain, but I much prefer the terrain and quality of snow (seems 'dryer' most of the time) at Stevens Pass, despite the longer drive.
