Yann Duran is a self-employed, self-taught software developer, based in Australia, who has been involved in writing software, in one form or another, for over 25 years. He started with hand-assembling Z80 assembly code on his Tandy Model 16 computer (dual 8 disk drives, 64K RAM) in the early 80 s, then taught himself a raft of software technologies in the following years. These include Turbo Pascal, MS Access (VBA), SQL Server (T-SQL) , VB.NET, WinForms, Entity Framework (EF), Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), and finally LightSwitch. Yann has been passionate about programming since he was in High School, in the days before the PC arrived, where computers were actually programmable calculators with punch cards and magnetic strips, and huge mainframes. He has also worked in computer sales, delivering software seminars and IT support, but programming has always remained his passion. Yann has been active in the LightSwitch community since Beta 1, and was awarded the Microsoft Community Contributor Award in 2011 for his contributions to that community.
