The last 4½ years I have designed and developed Windows client software for audiological medical devices. It has been very interesting and challenging though it's a somewhat conservative business segment. Starting January 2007 I will again be in the consulting business, as I am joining the Microsoft solution provider Progressive IT that offered me a position as software development consultant. The company develops high quality information, integration and project management solutions. I am looking very much forward to this change in pace and think it will offer a lot of new experiences.
