Paul M Watt - Professional Profile



I have been developing software for almost two decades. The majority of my experience has been with C++. I have had the opportunity to develop software applications, application virtualization, web clients, mobile device management, device drivers and embedded system software for routers and microwave frequency modems.
Over the years I have learned to value maintainable software more than all of the other qualities. Occasionally I reach a point in a project where the sacrifice must be made to optimize a section of code for performance, or resource usage. However, by starting out with a simple, maintainable design, I am able to adapt my projects to meet the challenges that inevitably appear during development; including my own misjudgments, incomplete requirements, feature creep and poor decisions for which I have no control.
I maintain my own repository and blog at[^], a site dedicated to guiding developers through the damn code.
