Victor campos

Currently working at BlackLine Systems ( as a Senior Developer where he is focusing on building robust and scalable solutions using leading edge technology that will take the BlackLine software into the next level of enterprise computing. Born and raised in Los Angeles, CA began programming in 1993 mainly focusing on DBase, then FoxPro and surfed the Visual FoxPro era to its very final release. In late 1999 and early 2000 he began looking into at what was originally called ASP+ during its beta (later named ASP.NET). Before the .NET Runtime had a name early adopters knew Microsoft would make the .NET Framework a success in one form or another. Wanting to be on the forefront of it all he has kept up with the technology and carefully implemented pieces of the framework that give software a strong ROI. The .NET Framework is huge and not all aspects of the framework are long term. Victor focuses on software that will last in the long run.
