Systems Engineer. Web developer
Last active: 11/04/2014
I'm a systems engineer with interest and experience in web development. I've worked as Director of Applications development for a local web development company and as an applications developer for a Canadian Startup before that. The startup experience was particularly interesting because it’s very close to an international freelancing experience, I had to telecommute to work every day and hold conference calls with my boss, a nice fellow from Montreal.
I also have some experience in game development, for my University thesis I developed an educational (fighting!) video game using XNA and C#. Not to brag but it was approved with honors…with complete unanimity from the jury, ahem, which was comprised by the heads of the systems engineering and math departments. So yeah, no bragging, but that was a thing that happened.
What else? Oh right, databases and what not, yeah I’m familiar with SQL and have used MySQL, SQLite. Currently researching non-relational databases like MongoDB, don’t have much experience with that but I’m very interested in learning. I guess I could say the same about mobile apps, not much experience but interested in learning.
Oh I almost forgot about git, the places I've formally worked for didn't use it, but I learned the basics by myself and though I'm no expert I feel comfortable with it.
I guess that is it then, if you are developing a game or a web app or whatever I hope I can be of use.
See ya on the coding battlefield.
