Software Development... It's a good thing to do. Now it is about Mobile, MVC and Javascript.

Sometime or another, if it's a business application that runs on a PC, I've probably coded something like it. I've been lucky. I like programming and I've gotten to do an amazing range of different projects from complicated screens for users to odd system interfaces to read Active Directory, Outlook, WMI and others. Some of the more exotic code is in the Software Library page. Now, it is mostly about the Web. Luckily I have always liked Javascript.

While I am primarily a developer, I think you need a broader knowledge to do the best job. I try to be able to provide an end to end solution if it is needed. I can install and configure your Domain and Database Server. I'll keep your Web Server happy. I have taken a good class in Project Management so that I know what is important to that group. I write as a hobby, so I am pretty good at communication and documenting systems. At the end of it though, it is about knowing what the current tools and practices are for making the software that will serve the needs of the User. I have also done a lot of software maintenance, so maintainability is something I always keep in mind. There a lot of ways to solve a problem. You need to start out with good methods and practices that will not come back to haunt you.

As far as development practices, I say that my strength comes from Object Design. I am familiar with test driven design, such as Extreme Programming. I'm also trained in Agile Development Practices and a background with the Team Foundation Server. I can fit into a lot of development environments.

How long I've been doing this. First this site was ASP and HTML with a bit of javascript and CSS.

Then it was about ASP.Net 2.0 with a little more javascript. The look didn't change, but it sure got a lot more AJAX. JQuery and other javascript libraries became a part of it. About that time it was more commonly called Web Forms development.

Then it was time for MVC3. Do you know what a hassle it is to make a hybrid Web Form / MVC web application! But always the site has been for testing and demonstrating new technologies. It's pretty cool and the latest addition, The Cosmic Store, is something I have wanted to do for a long time. It gives a lot of room to explore MVC techniques.

One more time. Now it is about Mobile and MVC4. Mobile is more of a challenge, but fun in ways and Bootstrap makes that easier. I'm certainly learning a lot of things not to do.
