     Steve York has been writing code since 1979, starting with the Microsoft BASIC interpreter and continuing through VB.NET. Since joining Thomson Reuters almost four years ago, he has made the switch to C# and has finally gotten used to writing semi-colons and curly braces instead of real words, conceding “I guess it’s not so bad”.

     One of his passions is clean, maintainable code. He is currently evangelizing unit testing and solid coding practices for software development at Thomson Reuters.
