G. Andrew Duthie, aka devhammer, is the founder and chief consultant for Devhammer Enterprises. Andrew is a software developer, trainer, writer, and consultant with more than 15 years of industry experience, including nearly 10 years as a Technical Evangelist for Microsoft's Mid-Atlantic States district, where he provided support and education for developers working with the Microsoft development platform.

Andrew is also the creator and developer of Community Megaphone, a site designed for promoting and finding developer community events.
In addition to his work in software development, Andrew has enjoyed some recent forays into the world of hardware experimentation, including developing for Kinect and .NET Gadgeteer, using his newly-formed hardware chops to do everything from blinking LEDs and making strange noises, to flying a helicopter with his bare hands.
