I have been working in the technology industry since the early 1980s. I started my career with goals of designing circuits and computers but quickly learned I had a gift for software development. I spent the first 7 years writing software for embedded systems in the robotics industry. Afterwords I moved into applying technology to solve business problems; I have been doing so ever since.
I am currently a principal owner of Mixon Consulting, providing training and technology solutions for SharePoint, Collaboration, Intranets, Extranets, eBusiness, Knowledge Management and Business Process Management (BPM).
I have extensive skills with design, architecture and the implementation of Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) 2003, SharePoint Portal Server (SPS) 2003, Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) v3, Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007 and related Microsoft Client/Server technologies. Other core technical competencies include development experience in C/C++, C#, .NET, ASP.NET, Web Services, Windows Workflow Foundation, MSMQ, and other leading Microsoft developer platforms/technologies.
In January 2008, I was honored with my third annual Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) award for my continued efforts and dedication to growing and helping the SharePoint community.
