United States United States
I started my career in software development back in 2000. Prior to that, I made my living as a detail drafter. My true start in programming, though, goes back much further. I first started learning to program when I was about 10 years old. It was back in ‘82 that I wrote my first application. It was a simple calculator program written on a TRS-80 that my uncle had. Since then, I’ve programmed in Basic, QuickBasic, Pascal, C++, VB 6, VB.NET, Java, HTML, and C #. I have a very diverse background. I’ve worked and written software for several types of companies, including manufacturing, engineering, and finance. I’ve had the opportunity to design and maintain a few enterprise level databases, I’ve written applications to run on windows CE, in a wireless manufacturing environment. I’ve also had opportunities to teach OOP methodologies, and design patterns. I thoroughly enjoy what I do, and my only regret is that I didn’t start sooner.

I started 1987 when I was about 14 years old, with Basic and Pascal on 8Bit Atari with insanely 130KB of memory, later 16Bit Atari (4Megs). In study I learn C, C++, Modula-2, Assembler and other science languages (Prolog, ADA). I hold a german engineer's degree Dipl.-Ing. (FH) in "Technical Computer Science" from the University of Applied Sciences Mittweida, Germany (comparable with a Master Degree).

Now I develop PPS and Supply-Chain-Software for middle and great companies in Chemnitz/Germany with Web- and MFC-Frontends in C, C++, ASP.NET, ADO.NET, XML, HTML, JavaScript.

My main tasks are specify and write down solutions of problems and implement the first code snippets.

In my spare time I like to drive a (fast) motocycle, read many science fiction and fantasy books and I'm a enthusiastically shotokan karate fighter. In winter I falling down from hill with alpin ski on foots, because snowboards are only for drug sniffers Wink | ;-)
