Writing code since 1979
I have been a professional software engineer for over 10 years. I have written many kinds of software, but my particular strengths are interactive graphics applications, compilers and interpreters, and algorithms.

I also enjoy writing, woodworking, and home improvement. Also this.

The best language I can't use

I'm learning C#, just for fun (from
this book, which is really well-written). It's a really, really nice language; they avoided a bunch of what I consider obvious mistakes that Java made, and also added a lot of useful stuff that is missing from Java (much of it to support component-based programming). There are those who complain that it's Windows-centric, but I don't think that really matters. I just wish all these Unixes would go away so I didn't have to use lowest-common-denominator tools to support them, and could instead use something like C#.
