Brad specializes in Software Reengineering and Software Migration – injecting quality and stability into existing legacy systems. He has converted many applications from VB6, ASP Classic, and .NET 1.1 into more modern applications with current architecture and the latest quality approaches.

It’s not often the case when someone says “I could have wrote the book on that” that they actually have. Brad is the author of Reengineering .NET, published by Addison Wesley.
