Vertigo Software stops by Microsoft

Sign in to queue

Description

I sit down (or stand up) with Scott Stanfield of Vertigo Software.  They have been building software for Microsoft for over ten years now, coming up with tons of applications. Here Scott introduces us to Family Explorer, a stand-alone family tree program that supports all the classic geneology formats. 

Technically, here's Vertigo in their own words:

Technically, we’re a collection of engineers and designers using the latest Microsoft technology to redefine the human/computer interface. Technically, we’re a collection of engineers and designers uniquely equipped to make the most of this ever-evolving technology – whether it’s Vista code, custom web applications or even new platform demos. Technically, that’s what we do.

    Simply Amazing stuff.

    The level of integration between web based resources and applications continues to grow at an amazing pace.  It's becoming almost impossible to keep up with it anymore.

    It all started with HTML...now we're dealing with javascript, flash, and the hybrid AJAX protocols all over the web.

    Honestly, no sooner do I rap my head around one aspect of this stuff and I'm completely lost with another.  It's becoming difficult to be versed in all software programs commonly used.

    Anyway, I'm not particularly big in geneology websites, but I appreciate the concept.  I don't see the need to research my own family, but keeping track of the Royals and the Kennedy's is always a challenge.

    ...love the age jokes.  Yeah, 23...10 years ago. Smiley  You'll always just be 20 to me, goddess of gaming.
