Alan Gordon

Alan Gordon is a Group Program Manager at FieldCentrix, a company that develops Internet-based software solutions for the field service industry. His primary areas of expertise are object-oriented and component-based design and programming. He is also an expert on COM/MTS/COM+, transactional applications, and relational databases. Alan has developed software in Fortran, C, C++, Java, Visual Basic, and C#.

Alan holds M.S. and B.S. degrees in Aerospace Engineering from UCLA, has served as a Research Fellow at California State University, and is an instructor at UCLA Extension in Los Angeles. He is the author of two books, The COM and COM+ Programming Primer (Prentice Hall, 2000) and The .NET and COM Interoperability Handbook (Prentice Hall, 2002). Alan is a regular contributor to Visual Studio Magazine and Visual C++ Developers Journal, and his article entitled "Create a Compensating Resource Manager to Extend Your App's Transactional Features" was published in the March 2001 issue of MSDN Magazine.

Alan and his wife, Tamber Lynn, have two young children, Bri and Bryan. They live in Long Beach, California, where they are doing a complete remodeling of their home, so home improvement has become another of Alan's interests. When time permits, he enjoys basketball (both watching and playing).
