Software

I am a software engineer for a living.  My career started a long time ago at the Arkansas Gazette newspaper (remember that?).  I was introduced to the then new fangled IBM System 38 which introduced new technologies that are still around today. I continued on with its successor under its many names – AS/400, iSeries, System i, IBM i. I wrote applications first in RPG III and then ILE RPG and RPG/free.

About 10 years ago,  I segued into Java development as well. It was slow, not the least because they couldn’t spare me to work on non-RPG applications but now I spend 90% or more of my time writing and maintaining Java applications using Spring and Hibernate. Also Javascript, of course.  I also create web sites with WordPress as you might have guessed if you are reading this.
