I like to explore different aspects of technology. Try new things, and get delighted. My interests are programming language, and Imaging. But its not hard to work on other things also. Algorithms delight me over a coffee break.

I basically code in C++, but JAVA is not so alien for me. I know few scripting languages also. Basically I feel that knowing a programing language is just a matter of getting introduced to it.

Software Developer ExGrip LCC

Working as professional freelancer for the last 5 years. Specialized on and addicted to .NET and a huge fan of Windows Azure from the beginning. Socializing people of all areas, from CEO's to co-workers. Consider myself as a social architect.

Now the proud owner of ExGrip LLC - building mobile cloud experiences. Our latest product "Tap-O-Mizer" is shortly in Beta2. It enables you to see what really needs to be changed in your Windows Phone 8 or Windows 8 app (in real-time, if needed), to ensure customer satisfaction.

Started authorship for "Pluralsight - Hardcore Developer Training" and going to publish the first course on Windows Azure soon.

A few years ago I made a major shift from developer to "devsigner".Focusing my creativity also on great user experiences on Windows, Windows 8 and Windows Phone. Utilizing Expression Design, Expression Blend, Photoshop and Illustrator.

I started developing my first programs on a Commodore C64 (basic and assembly) at the age of fourteen years. Later on an Amiga 500 (C++). After that I made the shift to DOS and Windows from version 3.11 and up.

To me the most important part of developing new experiences is to work with creative and outstanding people and to bring new, exciting ideas to life.

I strongly believe that everyone can be a hero if he/she get's pushed and motivated and valued. Therefore, and that under any circumstances: "People first!"

Specialties:Extremely motivated and pushing people to create results.

Mike Meinz
Retired
United States United States
I’m retired. When I started my career, programming projects consisted of plugging wires into plug boards to create punch card processing applications to be run on electrical accounting machine like the IBM 402, 407, 085, 088, 514, 519, etc. From there, I moved to writing SPS and Autocoder applications on an IBM 1401 with 4K of memory eventually upgraded to 16K of memory. After many years of migrating my skills to various languages on various hardware platforms, I became an Information Technology Director where I didn’t need to program anymore. So, starting in 1996, I volunteered my time with a local community cable television organization and built some applications to help them run their operations. Originally in Clipper Summer 1987 and later Clipper 5.2, I migrated and enhanced those applications to VB .NET 2003 in 2003. I retired from my full-time job in 2010. Since then, I have continued to support the local community cable tv organization's applications. In 2013, I migrated the VB .NET 2003 Solution to VB .NET 2012 so that it can run on 64-bit computers and interact with Microsoft Office 2010. The upgrade went smoothly. In mid 2013, I developed a VB .NET 2012 application for them to download election results data from the Secretary of State's web site, format the results and send them to a VizRT character generator for on-air display.

Saleh Hamadeh
Software Developer
United States United States
First of all, I cannot describe how much I adore math, computer science, and physics. I started coding when I was thirteen. I learned C at that age, and then I moved to learning C++, Java, Python, and, of course, HTML, CSS, Javascript, and PHP. When I was young, my major motivation for learning programming was to create games. I developed around a dozen games for my PC and Wii when I was in high school. At 17, I bricked my Wii by trying to access the system files, but never mind that now.

In last couple of years, I spent most of my time learning the newest technologies. I learned Android programming two years ago, and as of now, I published two apps on Google Play. Then, I completed two Udacity courses and UC Berkley's Artificial Intelligence course on EdX.

My current interests are:
* Managing complexity of large-scale applications.
* Marketing automation and customer engagement using artificial intelligence.

When I am not coding, I will probably be walking around downtown Kennesaw, reading, blogging, or hanging out at Starbucks.
