Today big business runs on a set of interconnected systems we could only dream about three decades ago. The old days of 2400 baud modems and public BBS systems have been replaced with the Internet, HTML, wireless broadband, and smartphones. Today’s technology opens the doors to business efficiencies and workforce multipliers not possible in the 20th Century.
My roots in mobile computing date back to the 1980s. My first computer was an IBM PC5155 (e.g. the “Luggable”); and Nintendo’s Gameboy was a necessary travel companion. By the end of the 1990’s my primary focus was developing software for embedded systems, the precursors to today’s smart phones and “internet of things”.
With all the hardware advancements, the dawning of new information exchange platforms and the extension of the World’s information superhighway to the far reaches of the globe, developing maintainable enterprise software remains as much an art as a science.
I am a passionate engineer who spends my time building and using software to solve difficult and time-consuming business problems. Most importantly, it’s not a grind for me. I really do love it.
