John Petersen

John Petersen John V. Petersen has been developing software for over 20 years. It all started when, as a staff accountant, he was asked to get involved in a system upgrade to replace an old IBM Series/1 computer (about the size of a large refrigerator!). Those first programs were written in Clipper Summer '87. Since that time, John's tools included dBase, FoxBase, Visual FoxPro, and Visual Basic. An early adopter of .NET, he then decided to go to law school. After practicing law for a few years, John realized that technology was a lot more interesting than the law. Today, John focuses on ASP.NET development and is having more fun than ever solving business problems for clients. In addition, he is a 13-time recipient of Microsoft's Most Valuable Professional Award, the author of several books, and a frequent contributor to CODE Magazine. John holds a BS in business administration from Mansfield University of Pennsylvania, an MBA in information systems from Saint Joseph's University, and a JD from Rutgers School of Law—Camden.
