a "current" developer from a different era
from the greater St. Louis area (Metro East)
I have been actively involved in software development for 40 years, of which the last half has been in consulting. My emphasis is in application-level software development, and is a full stack developer with expertise in Functional and Object Oriented Technologies, Distributed Management, Client/Server Computing, Web Development, GUI Development, and Engineering Applications.
I hold a Computer Science degree from the University of Missouri Rolla. I am very pragmatic, and production oriented, and enjoy working in all aspects of the software development life cycle.
Now retired, my wife and I travel, and enjoy being grandparents.
I have started biking. My son and daughter-in-law (a seasoned triathlete) inspired me to get more exercise.
