Michael Eaton (blog) was kind enough to sit down with me at the Microsoft Developer Conference in Detroit, Michigan, and tell me his story. Michael has a great background, first looking to go into the military, then into law enforcement, and finally settling in programming. He's got a lot of experience as an independent consultant. He's a prolific blogger and an active member in the local community, attending and speaking at conferences and focusing on helping people hone their craft.
Michael was also the blogger who started the "How I Got Started In Programming" blog meme that swept the internet last year that was an inspiration for this video series.
As a result of some feedback regarding the length of some of the interviews, I've split the interview into two parts for easier viewing and enjoyment. Enjoy!
