My name it Brett Slaski. I'm an IT professional and technologist. I currently work for CEB as a build engineer and programmer. There's some management sprinkeled in here and there still as well. This website, my blog, the content and oppinions are my own.
I was an IT manager for The Synergy Plan, LLC for nine years where we developed an HRIS system on a new framework called Microsoft .NET. At the time making a huge decision to go with .NET and C# opposed to Java. I took my experience from there to Valtera Corporation where I build and hack EOS and 360 survey applications for fortune 100 companies with a great team. With limited resources we've tuned applications and the infrastructure to host ten's of thousands of simultaneous users.
I spend a good amount of my free-time reading about technology. If you see me on the street I almost always have my iPod on. I am not listening to music but podcasts from great shows like .NET Rocks, Hanselminutes, Runas Radio, The Ship Show, and Arrested DevOps (among others).
My wife and I raise two boys who are slowly destroying our house in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago.
