James R. Twine - Professional Profile


    Blog RSS
Programming since the age of 10, started professionally at the age of 17. Currently involved in both Client and Server side development on Win32 platforms for MC/HA/FT financial applications. Development experience with Win32, Win16, Linux and other flavors of Unix.

Extensive multithreaded development experience on Windows platforms using the Win32 SDK, and MFC.

Experience with HA/FT n-tiered Client/Server systems as well as GUI apps of varying complexity. Some experience with Game developement.

Having learned that the stuff you can barely get away with doing Client-side apps just does not cut it in the real "Server World", I am amazed how many 'professionals' cannot tell the difference between "works" and "correct" or try to (mis)use VB and/or MFC on server-side development projects, never considering that just because it RUNS, does not mean it runs WELL.

Lastly, I am also a collector of arcade games, and can perform repairs, conversions, etc. Search for my name, you will find me on lots of arcade-related documents and sites.
