I have been developing software for almost two decades. The majority of my expertise as well as my strongest language is C++ with the networking software as my domain of focus. I have had the opportunity to develop:
* Desktop applications (Data Layer, Business Layer, Presentation Layer)
* Application virtualization
* Web clients
* Mobile device management software
* Device drivers
* Embedded system software for
- IP routers
- ATM routers
- Microwave frequency modems
 
Over the years I have learned to value maintainable design solutions first. This has allowed me to adapt my projects to meet the challenges that inevitably appear during development, including:
* My own misjudgments
* Incomplete requirements
* Feature creep
* Poor decisions for which I have no control
 
I am a Mentor and frequent contributor to CodeProject.com with tutorial articles that teach others about the inner workings of the Windows APIs.
 
I am the creator of an open source project on GitHub called Network Alchemy[^], which is a set of Network APIs that are focused on helping developers write robust network communication software.
 
I maintain my own repository and blog at CodeOfTheDamned.com/[^], a site dedicated to guiding developers through the damn code.
