Bertrand Le Roy

Bertrand started his professional developer career in 1982 when he published his first video game. He then spent a few years studying math and physics, got a Ph.D. and then went back to software development. He released in 2002 what was probably the first CMS to run on ASP.NET. A year later, he was hired by Microsoft’s ASP.NET team and moved to the US. He has worked on ASP.NET versions 2.0 to 4.0, ASP.NET Ajax, contributed to making jQuery an official part of the .NET developer’s tool chest and represents Microsoft in the OpenAjax Alliance’s steering committee. In his spare time, he’s a gamer, a pretty good skier, a very mediocre golfer and he wonders who really reads bios.
