Interknowlogy Scratches the Surface!
Dan Hanan and Kevin Kennedy from Interknowlogy talk about their experiences working with WPF, Surface, and Silverlight. Interknowlogy is run by Tim Huckaby, a long-time guest and friend of .NET Rocks!
Dan Hanan is a Lead Software Engineer at InterKnowlogy in Carlsbad, CA. He is currently working with a client to come up with a next generation enterprise application centered around data visualization. Before diving head first into WPF the past couple years, Dan worked on both sides of the wire: writing occasionally connected Click-Once WinForms smart clients for the front-end as well as back-end technologies such as WCF, ASMX web services, and SQL. He likes to try to forget his early years, which were spent hassling with C++, MFC, COM, etc.
Since graduating from MIT in 1999 with a degree in computer science, Kevin Kennedy has written software for a number of industries including healthcare, biotech, finance, and defense. The technologies have leveraged various platforms with a mix of web and rich-client applications, but his efforts have consistently focused on the presentation layer. This has involved layout, usability, rich controls, animation, and 3D interactive content. Additionally, Kevin has had the opportunity to lead development teams including one that incorporated team members from four continents. His research interests include user interaction, procedural graphics, artificial intelligence, and computational aesthetics. He lives in Cardiff by the Sea, a beach town in northern San Diego County and spends the majority of his free time with his family or on his mountain bike.
