Markus Egger

Entrepreneur, Microsoft Regional Director, and Software Engineer in Houston, Texas

I am the President and Chief Software Architect of EPS Software Corp. and it's various brands, such as CODE Consulting, CODE Staffing, CODE Training, CODE Framework and VFPConversion. I am also the Publisher of CODE Magazine. I am a Microsoft RD (Regional Director) and one of the longest-serving MVPs (1995-present). In addition, I am the founder of other business ventures, such as Wikinome (Genetic Sequencing Analysis), Tower48 (digital software escrow), L2 International Real Estate, and more.

I have worked on a large number of software projects for some of the world's largest companies (including a number of Fortune 500 companies). I have worked as a contractor to the Microsoft Visual Studio team, and have worked closely with various product groups at Microsoft. Besides my activities around CODE Magazine, I have been published extensively in practically all large industry publications (mainly in English, but on occasion in German as well). I have received various and numerous awards and recognitions, many related to my active involvement in the community and my regular appearances at events of all sizes. I have also been involved in the creation and continued support of various user groups.

My current key areas of technological interest are a mixture of Windows and Web Development (using mostly Microsoft technologies, such as WPF and ASP.NET), as well as server-side technologies, especially Microsoft's Azure cloud.

In my spare time, I am an enthusiastic ice hockey player, golfer as well as an avid windsurfer, traveler, and general enthusiast of sports such as scuba diving or mountain biking. On rainy days I either read, enjoy a computer game, or research new technologies.

Talk to me about: Windows Apps (WPF and others), ASP.NET, HTML5 (including Angular), C#, JavaScript, Cloud, Azure, Services/Microservices, databases, CODE Magazine, genetics, software escrow, and many other topics.
