Short Biography

Lloyd Dupont is an Australia born Frenchman living in Australia now (thanks to his Australian passport! ^^).

Lloyd is an enthusiastic .NET (C#, WPF, WCF, Silverlight, WinForm, Enitity Framework, MVC), WinRT (C++, DirectX) developer, who has slowly increased his Microsoft expertise since 2001. Before that he was working with ObjectiveC on NeXT and Java.

Lloyd is an easy going person who like outdoor activity and martial art (I used to practice many before my health trouble were too bad, and I'm soon going to practice again! :).

Lloyd has been afflicted many years by chronic sicknesses, mostly chemical sensitivity as a side effect of long term ignored celiac disease. He had to live in ever more remote places to cope with life!
But, finaly, since 2009 he finally started to get the upper hand. Although very slowly...
