"Development is the process of expanding the real freedoms that people enjoy
- A.Sen, Nobel prize in economics


Senior ACM member and former C/C++ freak

Short background:

  • 1984 Fluent in Z80 assembler and M, a portable PDP11 like assembler, in a time where UCSD p-code was the only widely known bytecode;

  • 1985 Adopted C as mother tongue. At that time Standard C didn't exist and K&R was the only true reference. Still have the #1 issue of the "C journal" (no, it was not called "the C user's journal" at that time !);

  • 1991 Adopted C++ as new main language. Actually it was the macintosh MPW implementation of ATT C++ 2.0. At that time templates didn't exist, STL was yet to come, and the best way to have cool generic containers was to implement some using multiple inheritance.

  • Started career as freelance developer. Since 1993 in team lead, project manager and management positions. Fond of people, system design, and coding.

I'm here to help, share knowledge, and have fun solving software design and coding issues, hoping to somehow contribute to the software craftsmanship/profession.
