Who is Ryan Farley?
I am a long-time developer that is passionate about .NET & Technology. I live and breathe "all things geek". I started with .NET and C# shortly after the debut at PDC in 2000 and have never looked back. Before moving to C# as my primary language I would find myself switching between Delphi, C++, and even VB (Yuck, did I mention I never looked back?). I've been equally involved in Windows and Web development for over 18+ years (but would casually play with programming before that as well). If you'd like you can read more about how I got started with programming
. I live in the Phoenix, Arizona area and have learned to love the desert.
I am a geek in all aspects of geekiness. I love anything programming or software related, Battlestar Galactica [*
], old-skool 70's science fiction [*
], anything Star Wars related [1
], TV, math, pop-culture [*
], and any kind of mind puzzle.
Although I live in Arizona, I work from my home office as the Director of Development for a Minnesota-based CRM Development & Consulting firm, Customer FX Corporation
. I am very committed to my company and have a great team to work with. I also have a CRM Developer blog
where I post on topics related to CRM development.
I've been married since 1994 [*
] to my lovely Jennette and I am a father of 5 [*
], yes 5, great kids who are plotting to take over the world.
If you really think I am worth contacting then you likely haven't contacted me before :-). I don't typically answer development/programming related questions via this blog (see "My Job" section above). I get a lot of those. However, feel free to use one of the following to get a hold of me:
This blog runs on the excellent open source blogging engine, Subtext (See subtextproject.com
). It uses a custom skin that I built, but was inspired by Wolfgang Bartelme's Dark theme
, using some aspects of it's layout as well as some items from the Subtext port of the wp-dark theme for WordPress by IcyFlash.
Thanks. Hope you've found my blog useful.
