My latest project is finishing up. It has been a year long enterprise java solution. The goal was thin client with java servers. This project has further developed my design skills. Security and messaging layers were custom designed. Servers implementing multiple network protocols, transaction event models and message pushing were used. Graphical interface design and issues specific to applet security and limitations are also a specialty.
Unique projects requiring new technology, solid design and Java. Distributed frameworks with database driven back-ends.
My last two years have been spent working for a web solutions company called "Burnt Sand Solutions Inc." This has been largely Java projects with some alternate web techonology also. Previous to that, I worked at a company doing client/server applications in C++
My primary language now is Java, but I also have considerable experience in C++ and PL/SQL. I consider most object-oriented languages part of my resume, as I have used Delphi and tend to appreciate design before implementation.
English, French and Mandarin Chinese... but that is not really the question. Computer languages seem to be coverd above.
Symantic Cafe, Visual C++ and Visual J++, Delphi, Visual Age
NT and Unix (Solaris and Irix)
Hmmm... that's a tough one. I predict a serious challenge to Microsoft from Java. The key, in my opinion, is Java enabling all sorts of devices like appliances and automobiles. Let's face it, Microsoft cannot write anything small enough to be portable like this. On the other hand, let's be careful too. I do not want to replace the cult of Windows with the cult of Java. My personal Java goal? Managing big projects in China... it's just a matter of time I feel before that market becomes huge.
