Buy Calvin A. Allen a coffee



My name is Calvin Allen.  I am a software developer in the Columbus, OH area specializing in C# and .NET, I'm a Microsoft MVP, and GitKraken Ambassador.

I like to blog at on a wide range of topics, but they usually come back to my core technologies (C#, .NET, etc.)

I also run a podcast, .NET Bytes, with Matthew Groves, where we talk about - you guess it - .NET (and C#, Visual Studio, etc., etc.)

I enjoy live streaming on Twitch and creating videos for YouTube as well.

I've made various contributions to the open source community, mostly in the form of documentation updates.  I do have a couple of OSS projects of "my own", most notably my "Open in Notepad++" extension for Visual Studio.

In my local development community, I try to stay as active as possible by helping out with the Central Ohio .NET Developers Group and by serving on the board of JavaScript & Friends.

Finally, I'm active on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn.

If you have any questions for me, please feel free to reach out however you are most comfortable.

Thank you for your support, it really means a lot to me. ❤
