Ben Duguid works in London, UK as a Technical Lead for The BIO Agency, mostly delivering web sites on various Microsoft based platforms.

He has run internal training sessions helping other developers get up to speed in the technologies he knows about, and tries hard to get others to do the same.

For what it's worth he is an MCPD in ASP.NET 3.5, and is currently a Pro-Tem Mod on LEGO Answers

comment How to minimize the impact of erroneous sensor readings?
Are the items you're tracking moving at all (i.e. other robots) or are they static? If they are static you could just discard the results based on your current speed and previous changes in distance...

comment Are there any lego base plates that are compatible with duplo?
You're right - the DUPLO baseplates don't really allow System bricks to connect, while the System -> DUPLO connection is quite good.

comment On what plane is 6912 Super Soarer based?
The lack of armaments probably comes from the fact that LEGO tend not to go in for "war" directly as well as the fact that someone else owns the license for "HM Armed Forces" based construction toys

comment On what plane is 6912 Super Soarer based?
I think "inspired by" is a more accurate question - there are a number of aspects of this model that are "similar to" but not identical to real planes.

comment Which bricks warrant an extra to be included in a set?
It's all about knowing the markdown which still works in the app ;) But yes, it's certainly more bare metal when you're in the app.
