Yes, been working with .NET (C#) since I got into the industry full time in 2006.
Yes. In school I studied database theory and spent time on Oracle systems. My LAMP days took me heavily into MySQL. Since being a .NET developer I have worked extensively with SQL Server in all it's flavors: 2005, 2008, 2008R2, Express and CE.
Yes. I have done some desktop development in Delphi but primarily I have been a .NET desktop developer. Initially utilizing WinForms, once WPF came out there was no looking back.
Yes. My first experience in mobile was developing mobile friendly as well as responsive layout web sites for mobile. Over the last year I have begun working with MonoDroid and MonoTouch to develop cross-platform native solutions for Android and iPhone. I have done some Mobile 6 development (only when forced to) and decided WP7 wasn't worth the effort. WP8 looks very promising and I look forward to diving in.
