Anthony Queen
Software Developer (Senior)
United States United States
I started my career in software development back in 2000. Prior to that, I made my living as a detail drafter. My true start in programming, though, goes back much further. I first started learning to program when I was about 10 years old. It was back in ‘82 that I wrote my first application. It was a simple calculator program written on a TRS-80 that my uncle had. Since then, I’ve programmed in Basic, QuickBasic, Pascal, C++, VB 6, VB.NET, Java, HTML, and C #. I have a very diverse background. I’ve worked and written software for several types of companies, including manufacturing, engineering, and finance. I’ve had the opportunity to design and maintain a few enterprise level databases, I’ve written applications to run on windows CE, in a wireless manufacturing environment. I’ve also had opportunities to teach OOP methodologies, and design patterns. I thoroughly enjoy what I do, and my only regret is that I didn’t start sooner.
