About the Author

Software Developer (Senior)
United States United States
I started programming more than 42 years ago using AutoCoder and RPG (note no suffixing numbers). Programs and data were entered using punched cards. Turnaround between submitting a job for compilation and execution was about 3 hours. So much for the "good old days!" Today, I particularly enjoy programming real-time software. I consider myself capable in WinForms, Mobile Apps, and C# although there are occasions that I yearn to return to C and the Win32 API.
