David Strickland

25 years programming exp. /C#/Xamarin/App Performance/DB Optimization


Nevada, United States


I have over 25 years in the IT industry and 15 in .Net. I bring expert level knowledge of C# with a passion for stretching the language and exploiting its capabilities. I'm currently convinced that Xamarin Forms is in a position to excel in the mobile, tablet and app development space and am looking for clients that agree. When out of pocket I contribute to various Xamarin Opensource code bases as well as develop Android Apps targeting the farming and commodity industries. Originally trained by the U.S. military I have worked on contract for various members of the U.S. fortune 100 ... moreas well as a variety of small and medium size companies world wide. I prefer to establish long term contracts with established companies where I can assist in both Application and SDLC development. Beyond working with Xamarin, I enjoy working on backend and middle tier processes, developing full stack along with likeminded team members supported by at least one graphics designer and a test plan. I prefer to use automated CI builds, unit tests, style cop and gated checkins to source control with semi-automated deployments. I have used as well as setup CI systems using TFS, Git, SVN, CVS and VSS.
