My name is Dennis White and I am software developer with over 20 years of professional experience. I have been employed as a software developer since the early 90’s back when Microsoft’s Windows 3.1x was just beginning to gain popularity and IBM’s OS/2 was the predominant leader in multi-threaded PC based Operating Systems.
Prior to choosing this as my profession I had studied architecture and then later Electrical and Mechanical engineering in college. However, as a young kid growing up I always played with computers, my first computer was a TRS-80 that I would spend countless hours writing programs for and I never thought of programming as a profession. To me it was something fun to pass the time much like playing a video game.
My story goes that in my final year of college I was taking a C/C++ programming class and as usual was just having fun working on various projects and my professor told me something that changed everything.
“You know they pay people to do stuff like this for a living?” – Professor Bolman
To me programming was something fun to do and that there were some lucky people who actually made money and a profession out of it. I still joke about how amazing it is that some company would actually pay me to do something that I look at as just having fun.
Over the years I have worked on various types projects using different toolsets, however, in the last few years I have focused my personal interests in the areas of web and mobile development.
Work Areas of Interest
- Mobile Development (iOS, Android and, mobile HTML5)
- jQuery and jQuery UI
I am always interested in new custom projects, as well as creating business ties with others working in similar fields as myself. You can always rest assured that if you hire me you are going to be getting more than a code jockey. My experience includes working on the design, development and implementation of new products as well as the maintenance of existing ones.
