My name is Joseph DeCarlo and I am a Solution Architect. I decided to enter the software industry in 1989 during college when I realized that despite having a scholarship in drama, my acting skills were not good enough to pay the bills.Joseph spent the early part of his career developing applications in C++. Later he was an early adopter of .NET and continues to stay on the cutting edge of technology. He has worked in several industry verticals including Financial Services, Telecommunications, and Manufacturing. Today, Joseph serves as an architect at Turner Broadcasting System, where he co-leads a product framework team. He enjoys application design and development and advocates service orientation in the enterprise. Joseph works in an agile environment and evangelizes agile methodologies.Joseph has a wife and two kids and lives outside of Atlanta, Georgia.
“I have known Joe DeCarlo for many years. We met in a C++ COM class that I was teaching. Joe was an excellent student. As a result of that work, Joe and I have kept in contact as our careers have progressed. He is now an accomplished Microsoft Architect and is an expert in many of the latest technologies, including the latest implementations of .NET services. I would highly recommend Joe as a Microsoft Architect.”September 29, 2007
