I have been a software developer for about 20 years, mostly in small IT department that means you do all the roles all the time from 1st line support to 3rd line diagnostics and help authoring. To be fair, I don't do enough of the later which in turn causes way too much of the former with new staff always ready to show you how unintuitive your interfaces are!

I generally consider myself a "data plumber" with the majority of my work in back end SQL. If I could rule the world by writing a SPROC I would....

Dave Clemmer
Software Developer Intelligent Coding Solutions, LLC
United States United States
I enjoy coding like an excellent beer. My particular passion and experience lies in the realm of modeling and code generation. In the late 80s and early 90s, I was involved in early modeling and code generation tools that reached the marketplace, including a tool that modeled FORTRAN programs and generated FORTRAN for parallel supercomputer architectures, and a tool that managed Shlaer-Mellor models and generated C++ code. Over the years, I have applied Shlaer-Mellor, UML, and custom modeling and various code generation techniques to greatly benefit the development of enterprise applications.

My current passion and endeavor is to foster the evolution of model oriented development. In particular, I am passionate about evolving the Mo+ model oriented programming language and related model oriented development tools, with as much community input as possible to achieve higher levels in the ability to create and maintain code. The open source site is at moplus.codeplex.com, and the Mo+ membership site is at modelorientedplus.com.

I have been a software engineer for over 20 years now. I'm an expert in writing scalable restful web API services, which I've been doing for over 7 years now for games companies such as EA and Ubisoft. I've also worked on several video games, including Skate 2 and 3, NHL, Need for Speed, various Assassins Creed games, Far Cry 3 and 4, Driver San Francisco and most recently with a team of 15 on EA's UFC free to play. On this latest project I designed, implemented, tested (including load tests in Gatling and JUnit on AWS), deployed and supported all the web services for the game client, supporting up to a half a million active sessions.

I am proficient at programming in C, C++, C#, Java etc. I've developed many types of games, applications, SDKs and web services in Linux, Unix, iOS, Android and Windows.

My spare time is spent teaching and lecturing computing languages and science. I have a PhD in Artificial Intelligence (specialising in knowledge representation - Semantic networks with inference engines).

Currently I am also building an A.I. general purpose robot. The brains behind it are a mix of 6 Raspberry Pi and Banana Pros, with 2 USB cameras, SATA drive, Router Switch with inter-pi Comms, 2 motorised track systems, plus various sensors including motion/pir/sound etc.

The six pi's are split according to functions, including eyes (image processing/recognition), ears (speech processing and simulated speech),motor (object avoidance, environment mapping, drives all movement), entertainment (web browsing, media playing etc), brain (knowledge system, and adaptive learning/memory systems) and development system ( logging, diagnostics, debugging).

I am available as a consultant, so if you need to get something out the door quick, or want to set down an expandable and resilient framework, ping me !

My Interview on Microsoft TechNet Wiki Ninja Link
Wolfgang Foerster
Software Developer (Senior)
Germany Germany
I started programming in Basic, Pascal, Fortran and C in the late 1980s during my last semesters at the University of Bonn, Germany, where I studied Physics. As a professional software engineer I moved on to C++ and C# in the field of scientific data acquisition, data analysis and - my favourite - data visualization.

From the very start of my life as developer I have been a fan of graphics, especially 3D graphics. I have been working with OpenGL, XNA and WPF 3D. Planning to start with SharpDX in the near future.

Besides programming I love making music (guitar and violin), doing sports (rock climbing and volleyball) and spending time with my beloved family.
Zijian
Software Developer

I started my IT career in programming on different embedded devices since 1992, such as credit card readers, smart card readers and Palm Pilot.

Since 2000, I have mostly been developing business applications on Windows platforms while also developing some tools for myself and developers around the world, so we developers could focus more on delivering business values rather than repetitive tasks of handling technical details.

Beside technical works, I enjoy reading literatures, playing balls, cooking and gardening.
