Gael Fraiteur is the founder & CEO of PostSharp. At PostSharp, Gael and his teams help make C# better so you can get back to the bright side of coding. Their mission is to help software developers stop writing boring repetitive code, freeing up their time to use their skills more efficiently to produce clean, reliable software that is easy to maintain.
Gael Fraiteur has been passionately programming since childhood, building his first commercial application at age 13. His vision to build an aspect-oriented software that would offer .NET developers the same productivity benefits as those enjoyed by the Java community became a reality when, in 2004, he built and released PostSharp to the wild. Since then, PostSharp has steadily grown to become the most comprehensive aspect-oriented software for .NET available today.
In this episode, Gael speaks about his journey since 2004 with PostSharp, many of the ins and outs, and a product rundown of all of their different offerings!
