Who is the DotNet Dude?

My name is Miguel A. Castro and I am a .NET Consultant, Author, Speaker, and Trainer with over 20 years of IT experience.  I have a background in full automation solutions encompassing all aspects of a project’s life cycle, including data gathering, architecture, design, development, documentation, and training.  I am also a Microsoft MVP in the area of Visual Developer C#, recently awarded for 2005.

This site was put together to give you an overview to who I am in hopes that we may one day do business together.  I am at heart a developer with a passion for coding.  My .NET language of choice is C#, though I have an extensive history with Visual Basic.  My area of special focus is ASP.NET Custom WebControls.  In this site you can download all sorts of components I have developed, including some WebControls I hope you will find very useful.  I also regularly post code snippets and other components I feel will be useful.  All downloads are free of charge open to royalty-free reuse.  The source code is provided for most of them but cannot be resold.

I am a regular contributor to CoDe Magazine  Magazine and a listing of my articles as well as other publishings can found on this site as well.

I am president of InfoTek Consulting Group, Inc. where I provide .NET consulting services to clients in the New York / New Jersey Metropolitan Area

My contributions to CoDe Magazine, user group talks, and freeware development are all inspired by the passion I have for what I do for a living. As many spend much of their lives trying to invent that feeling, I have the good fortune of my work and my hobby being one in the same. As a consultant in one of the fastest paced industries around, my training in new technologies and continuing practice of existing ones never stops. Beginning with the Dungeons & Dragons dice roller I wrote on an old TRS-80 when I was 12 and continuing with the custom ASP.NET WebControls I enjoy developing today, the onslaught of new technologies has been a welcome challenge and an ever-present part of my life. It is my belief that loving what you do plays a major role in your ability to excel beyond your own expectations. It is a passion for technology that is my strategy for success.
