Independent Software Contracting 4/86 - present
As software contractor I worked for various companies, specializing in MS-Windows, OS/2, MS-DOS, and UNIX applications such as retail (backoffice) operations, financial database systems, user interfaces, DLLs, client/server, and communications. All of the following projects involved hands-on design and coding, and many were for companies that produced shrink-wrapped software products for the retail consumer market. In these projects, I typically used Microsoft development tools to develop the software, and various Microsoft and third-party tools for debugging, version control, and bug tracking, in a continuous cycle of new requirements, design, coding, and alpha and beta testing. Nearly all of these projects involved some form of GUI user interface development, usually using MFC.
