I've been developing software professionally since around 1997 after a major career change from accountancy. Creating automated sales and profitability analyses using VisualBasic for Applications within Microsoft Excel piqued my interest, so I decided to take a class in C++ (you can overload operators?!)...I was hooked! Now I knew my true passion was for designing and implementing software solutions.
I started my professional software career writing in Visual FoxPro and VisualBasic. I then moved on to Java shortly after Y2K, continuing with that for many, many years. I've also done some C#, Python, and even a little Perl.
Cloud technologies are my bag these days; Kubernetes, Linkerd, Helm, and Kafka. My latest obsession is the Go programming language; mostly because it's different and fun for me. I'm even the organizer for the St. Louis Go Meetup group.
Hit me up...
if you're in need of a contributor or have something interesting; I just may say 'yes'!
