For more than 10 years I have been developing applications using C, with the transition to using primarily C++ and Java several years ago. My focus has been writing end-user software to interface with niche market hardware. This includes communication with external hardware through various interfaces (USB, RS-232, Parallel port), database work (Including Oracle and MySQL, as well as proprietary flat-file databases), and basic User Interface development. As was required by different applications and environments, I have written systems for Pattern Recognition, Data Mining, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and other projects that were research based. Code optimization for time efficiency is ... something that I have concentrated on as well, given that many of these algorithms are computationally intensive. Also, as part of this work, I have built functionality for the encryption and decryption of data, as well as created utilities that needed to support cryptanalysis functionality. I also have experience is web based application development, which naturally includes HTML, DHTML, CGI, and limited PHP. I have a good background in software testing, and pride myself on creating documentation that is useful for both the end user, and at the system maintenance level. Currently, I am in the early stages of working with Objective-C to develop applications for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. Similarly, I am familiarizing myself with Google's Android OS, so that applications developed for the Apple devices can be ported to other mobile devices.
