Robb Schiefer Jr.

Robb is a follower of Christ, husband to the perfect wife and father of two beautiful girls. Coincidentally, he is also a successful .NET software developer, which is a better qualification for writing a programming book.

His development career started while working part time during college where he learned graphic design basics and built simple data-driven PHP websites. After college he worked for a small startup on a VB6 application for educators and learned .NET by jumping head first into building a complimentary ASP.NET site. Since then he has worked as a .NET developer for a market leading, privately held corporation with a global presence. This enterprise environment has provided many unique challenges and learning opportunities. He currently leads a development team in the company’s latest development efforts, mentors many developers and plays a leading role in planning the company’s .NET architecture.

Prior to the announcement of Windows Phone 7 he had little experience with Silverlight but always wanted to learn it. WP7 provided the perfect opportunity to learn Silverlight in a defined space and on a smaller scale. He currently has several apps in the marketplace and has plans for many more (if he ever gets this book done).
