I am Director of Solutions Architecture and a senior consulting engineer in the Pacific Northwest. I consult regularly on Microsoft based technologies. I have performed architecture design sessions around the world focused on hosted applications and communications.
My primary technology focus has been on Microsoft Infrastructure with experience in Windows Server, System Center, SQL Server, Exchange Server, and Microsoft Office Server Solutions.
I have also been involved in the XML community with the opportunity to speak at some of the key events during the nacent development of several XML standards. I have been involved in Topic Maps, Syndication languages and Publishing metadata standards.
Raised in Gig Harbor, Washington, I live with my family in Renton, Washington. I am actively involved in the community and am a member of ONE (http://www.one.org) as well as a supporter of various charitable organizations and community projects.
My personal website (under construction as usual) is located at http://www.kogers.com/family/people/daniel.htm. This blog is for posts both personal and technical. I find that as I get older the focus seems to be more personal and less technical, but then maybe that is the nature of the beast…
