Aaron Cure is an avid developer, instructor, and innovator. During his 10 years in the military as a linguist and a satellite communications repair technician, he learned that his real love was computer programming.
After various throes with PHP, Classic ASP, VB, and a brief encounter with Java/JSP, he found a real passion for the .NET framework. After searching for a "better way" to carry out database storage and retrieval, Aaron stumbled across the NHibernate framework.
Unsatisfied with the options for interacting with this great framework, he founded the NHibernate Generation project (nhib-gen) on SourceForge to reduce the "barrier to entry" for most developers.
Aaron and his family run a small consulting and web hosting company doing web design and custom software development for various organizations across the country. One of their more interesting projects has been software to control laser cutting machines.
In his spare time, he also enjoys developing projects with his daughters, using everything from Lego NXT (using C# and Bluetooth communications) to the Microchip PIC platform (using JAL and USB). He also collects and restores classic farm tractors, engines, and farm equipment, as well as semi trucks and trailers. He and his family display them at tractor shows, parades, schools, and various other community events.
