A Brief History
Very Practical Software is a one man shop headquartered in occasionally historic Rockville, Maryland.
Our founder, president, and chief code scrubber is Dean Fiala. He has been writing commercial software for over 15 years. For the past 5 years he has been overly intimate with ASP.NET. He is active in many online forums and the dysfunctional local user group. For his outstanding contributions to the development community, he was named a Microsoft MVP in 2006 and 2007.
Dean is adept in designing scalable, robust applications that actually get used. He has developed software for a wide variety of industries including banking, cattle feeding and genomics. His current technologies are C#, VB.NET, SQL Server and XML/XSLT.
He has a degree in Political Science from MIT.
