Software Developer with 12 years of experience dives into creating different software projects

Methodology

I base my classes on the same process that I believe should be followed for all projects, be they academic or professional. We will begin with brief overviews of topics and then hands on exercises. As we dive deeper into the hands on portion of classes we will create simple design documents, have discussions (even if it is just with a rubber duck!) and then code.

Background

I am a Senior Software Developer with experience ranging from embedded systems to video game consoles. Besides writing software I enjoy singing, playing guitar, golfing, and tinkering with just about anything that can be tinkered with. I have spoken, taught and tutored Software Developers of various experience levels across disparate topics locally for the last six years in both 1 on 1 and group settings.
