Software and Science Fiction
As a software engineer
I am skilled in C#, C++, .Net, ASP.Net, SQL, and HTML along with a broad understanding of Patterns, Object-Oriented development in general. The last ten years have been a mix of ASP.Net, .Net, Java, and SQL development along with Requirements Gathering, Writing Designs, Project Planning, User Support, Writing Code, Unit Testing, Regression Testing, and System Pre-Release Testing along with Team Lead/Manager responsibilities.
I have over 25 years of software development experience in a range of industries. This experience includes architecting and designing systems for server, desktop, mobile, and web-based applications. I have also led Design and implementation teams for systems using mainly MS-Windows operating systems, with some use of Linux and Real-time proprietary systems. I have worked on custom software written for a specific customer application, shrink-wrapped software that is designed to appeal to a wide range of customers and internal applications that are used by the company that writes them.
As a science fiction author
I have been writing professionally for under six months; however, I have been a Science Fiction fan and written for personal enjoyment for over forty years. I am currently editing my first novel and have two short stories set in the same world on Medium.
