Dave has been programming for the past 20+ years first on a variety of platforms and operating systems using various languages. As a hobbyist Dave cut his teeth on the Commodore Pet and the 64 coding in basic and then moving to 6502 ASM. Dave moved to the Amiga using 68000 ASM and then C. His knowledge of the C language offered the stepping stone for him to make his hobby his profession taking a position coding C on an AIX Unix platform. Since then he has worked on many flavors of Unix, QNX, Windows (3.11 – present), and has been coding games for his Pocket PC in his spare time.

Joe is one of those software engineers with a film degree. His first paid programming job (you think film is a good way to make a living?) was writing games for Apple II's using 6502 assembly. He soon moved to 80x86 assembly, C, C++ (for a long time), C# and then back to C++ with occasional dabbling in C#, Python and other vile languages.

He first wrote software for Windows 3.0 in 1990. Save for some work in Linux, DOS and a mercifully brief foray into OS/2, he has concentrated on designing and writing software for all versions and types of Windows except RT.

I am a software architect and I have been developing software for nearly two decades. Over the years I have learned to value maintainable solutions first. This has allowed me to adapt my projects to meet the challenges that inevitably appear during development. I use the most beneficial short-term achievements to drive the software I develop towards a long-term vision.

C++ is my strongest language. However, I have also used x86 ASM, ARM ASM, C, C#, JAVA, Python, and JavaScript to solve programming problems. I have worked in a variety of industries throughout my career, which include:
• Manufacturing
• Consumer Products
• Virtualization
• Computer Infrastructure Management
• DoD Contracting

My experience spans these hardware types and operating systems:
• Desktop
o Windows (Full-stack: GUI, Application, Service, Kernel Driver)
o Linux (Application, Daemon)
• Mobile Devices
o Windows CE / Windows Phone
o Linux
• Embedded Devices
o VxWorks (RTOS)
o Greenhills Linux
o Embedded Windows XP

I am a Mentor and frequent contributor to CodeProject.com with tutorial articles that teach others about the inner workings of the Windows APIs.

I am the creator of an open source project on GitHub called Alchemy[^], which is an open-source compile-time data serialization library.

I maintain my own repository and blog at CodeOfTheDamned.com/[^], because code maintenance does not have to be a living hell.
