    Future Infinite Simulations

    Canada - Last active: 9 days ago - Tests: 10 - Portfolio: 3

    Provide the highest of quality software engineering and development services for my clients. With over **20 years professional experience** and nearly **30 years programming experience**. I am educated in engineering and computer science and have a good base of knowledge of software engineering concepts and principals. See the following link for my philosophy [http://www.futureinfinite.ca/Content/OurCompany/HowWeDoThings.aspx][1]. If you are looking for something to be done; then I can do it - I have **never failed on any project I've worked on**. Explicitly I have worked quite a bit with Microsoft based languages, tools, and technologies: Visual Studio, MFC, C/C++, ATL, OLE, COM/DCOM, WFC, .NET, C#, VB, ADO, LINQ, LINQ to SQLT-SQL, Workflows, WCF, Configuration Services, Composite Applications, Distributed Systems, STL, to name a few and I have worked on many other non Microsoft tools and technologies. An area of specialization I have aquired over the past few years has been in the equities trading domain. I have spent the last 6 years developing a trading system and have had to become familiar with things like data aquisition, trading algorithms, and trade submision. I have used many different data feed providers (currently using TrackData services). I have developed a generalized trade request module (used by the clients of my system) and is currently configured to work with Interactive Brokers TWS [API]. The system has been optimized to process request in a very short timeframe. From aquisition to trade submission is between 2.5 and 5 seconds which is a very reasonable amount of time considering the amount of data being retrieved and processing occuring it. I pride myself on the ability to pick up new technologies and tools very quickly and efficiently. Everything in software development is based on some theory or concept; and understanding these theories and concepts is key in understanding how current and future technologies can be used. With others you will get a programmer with limited to no understanding of software engineering practices. With me you will get someone who knows how to take an idea, understand what that idea means; conceptualize it; logicalize it; organize it; design it, implement it, deploy it, and maintain it. In the end you will have deliverables of the highest quality that can easily grow as your project grows. Nothing in software is static; and I make sure that it isn't. I absolutely love software development and taking an idea and engineering it into a product. It gives me a great deal of pleasure in producing excellent products. Let's work together; let's make your product excellent. Peter Simard Future Infinite Simulations [1]: http://www.futureinfinite.ca/Content/OurCompany/HowWeDoThings.aspx

    Full Stack -- iOS, Android, 2D/3D Games, WordPress, Backend, Photoshop

    Netherlands - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 9

    I am an enthusiast in computer hardware and programming. I specialize in high-performance mobile apps, creative 2D/3D game design and development, and also fancy websites and back-end services. I started computing when I was 10, so technically I have nearly 20 years of IT experience. Professionally in my early years, I have done mostly mundane and performance-oriented C#, Java and Oracle database administration. I used to build computers, overclock them, and write software to torture the hell out of them. Now, I'm more orienting myself to building high-quality mobile apps, creative and well-polished games that could become as popular as Angry Birds, and high-profile websites that might possibly "dominate the world". Here are some assets that are in my arsenal of skill set: LANGUAGES: Objective-C, Swift, Java, C++/C#, PHP, Python PLATFORMS & FRAMEWORKS: Cocoa, iOS/Android SDK, Cocos2D, PhoneGap, Xamarin, Corona SDK, WordPress/Magento/Joomla, AngularJS, Node.js, Microsoft .NET SKILLS: iOS 6-8, Android, Box2D, OpenGL, Unity, Facebook/Twitter API, Instagram, Google Map API/GeoLocation, Parse.com, Firebase, Openfire/XMPP, HTML5/CSS3, jQuery, REST/SOAP, XML/JSON, Ajax, MySQL/Oracle Database Administration, SEO, Photoshop, Illustrator, Web design
