Nancy Folsom wrote her first bugs on punch cards in
1976 for a high school geometry class. She took a detour from computer science to study fine art.
She returned to computer science in 1982, when the PC revolution was blossoming. PCs
allow programmers to more efficiently introduce bugs into code! She's been
programming fulltime since 1989 and has specialized in Fox
products since 1993. Her experience includes project management, requirements
gathering, design, modeling, data design, programming, end user and
technical documentation, training, and support, and she's written software in
the domains of accounting, time and billing, point-of-sale, cost management,
construction cost estimating, and inventory management.
An independent consultant since 1998, Nancy has been a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional since 1998, and
coauthored a series of articles for CoDe Magazine about managing customer
relations during the software development process. Nancy still draws and paints,
and is currently reading about visual intelligence since she's interested in
how our brains process visual information. She lives with her dog and cat and
likes to take walks in the rain, which is good, since she moved to Seattle in
2001, and here _everything_ is done in the rain.
