When it comes to developing Internet applications there are so many skills a developer needs to learn that it's difficult just to get started. I've been fortunate to work with some amazing people over the years, people that have helped me learn many of the skills needed to be an effective programmer. I've taken their lead and have made a point to help teach and train as many developers as possible. But, it's impossible to work with everyone in person so I decided to create a whitepaper that helps developers get their work environment up and running. I self-published this paper on March 12, 2007 It covers just about everything a developer needs to know to get started using Apache, Subversion, TortoiseSVN, and ColdFusion. Interesting stats about the whitepaper: It includes 60 pages, 91 screenshots, and since it's release it has been downloaded more than 4,000 times.

Technical Reviewer - Internet & World Wide Web Programming 3rd ed.
During the summer months of 2003 I was approached by Prentice Hall, the publishing company responsible for
many of the Deitel books, and asked to review a bunch of Flash and XML chapters for the third edition of
Internet & World Wide Web Programming.
It was my first experience reviewing technical writing as well as my first time working with a publisher
and editorial deadlines. It was hard work reading the chapters and submitting technical feedback on what
was correct and what wasn't. In the end I reviewed around 6 of the books chapters which was published in
December of the same year.
