Episode 53: Barry Dorrans

Barry is the security czar for ASP.NET which means he gets to look at the framework, tools and template code, searching for potential insecurities and sometimes even fixing them. He also triages publically and privately reported vulnerabilities before getting someone else to fix them which means he gets all of the fun and none of the responsibility. He is rude and objectionable on twitter as @blowdart.

Episode 52: Matt Pietrek

With over 25 years in the software industry, Matt Pietrek has had quite the interesting ride. Starting at Borland in the late 1980s during the heady days of the Microsoft/Borland “compilers wars”, he got his first, intoxicating taste of OS internals, debuggers and tools. From there he spent a decade at NuMega Technologies, working on seminal, award-winning products like BoundsChecker and SoftIce. Next was a seven year stint at Microsoft where he worked on the Visual Studio debugger & profiler teams, Red Dog (now known as Azure), and Hyper-V. He currently works at Skytap, a cloud computing company. Along the way, he wrote several books on Windows internals, as well as numerous articles and columns for magazines just as MSJ/MSDN, PC Magazine, and Byte. When not slinging Python code or groveling through logs, Matt indulges his passion for distilled spirits and cocktails. He’s got a serious, ever growing collection of rums, and writes the CocktailWonk blog about his spirited adventures: http://cocktailwonk.com
