Home On Programming Articles, Etc. Blogs Resume


The first paragraph is always the hardest to write. I have no idea why you came to my page so I will leave it at a simple welcome to my site.

Programming Notes & Articles

It is an artificial demarcation but the articles I have written are available here. While notes I have made on programming issues that are not published are available here. So if you are looking for something I wrote on a programming topic, please check both pages. You might also want to check my programming blog here as this is where I post quick notes on problems I hit and solved.

Professional Background

I have been developing software and managing software developers for over 20 years. I tend to alternate between pure development and then managing developers. This way I do understand the technology when I am managing. I have managed up to the V.P. level and I have worked as a senior developer.

I also write in my spare time as a hobby. I have managed to write 4 books and numerous magazine articles. Also one screenplay (hasn't every writer?) but it hasn't been picked up.

We'll go forward from this moment.
