I do a little programming in VB2010 and for PIC controllers. I wouldn't call myself an expert as it always takes me a long time and I'm constantly learning. I enjoy what I do.

I've completed a few projects.

Tide calculator for the UK
Sony LANC camera remote control - serial and Pic controllers
PIC Pulse Induction Metal Detector
Morse Code through the sound card
Home Maintenance Log

I also do a little web design and maintain my diving club's web site at http://www.esac.org.uk/.

  • Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something is more important than fear.
  • The fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself.
  • People need not fear the unknown if they are capable of achieving what they need and want.
  • Every blessing ignored becomes a curse.
  • Sometimes what's in your head isn't as crazy as you think.
  • We never really grow up, we only learn how to act in public.
  • You can make very bad teams with very good individuals.
  • Admitting mistakes means you have a sense of responsibility in your actions and that shows you are more matured than almost anyone. -Nithin

Software Developer (Senior) DeGarmo
United States United States
I am currently a Senior Software Developer at a company in Illinois called DeGarmo. My primary skills are in .NET, SQL, JavaScript, and other web technologies although I have worked with PowerShell, C, and Java as well.

In my previous positions, I have worked as a lead developer, professor and IT Director. As such, I have been able to develop software on a number of different types of systems and I have learned how to correctly oversee the overall direction of technology for an organization. I've developed applications for everything from machine automation to complete ERP systems.

I enjoy taking hard subjects and making them easy to understand for people unfamiliar with the topic.
