Objective

A progressively challenging and rewarding career in Software Design and Development leading into a management position. This position would be in the greater Philadelphia, Valley Forge, or Lancaster area.


Software Development

Extensive experience in the design and development of Networking software for Unisys Corporation, a worldwide information technology services and solutions company.


Languages

ALGOL, Pascal, Intel Assembler, C, C++, FORTRAN, IBM BAL, PL/I, HTML, Java, JavaScript and others. I am most interested in programming in C, C++, or Java if that opportunity arises. My philosophy on computer languages is that if you give me a manual, a sample program and a week, then I'll be able to program in the language in question.

Platforms

Microsoft Windows based systems (WIN9x/WINNT/WIN2000/WINXP); Unisys A-Series; Unisys V-Series; Unisys Clearpath; Unisys ES7000; Burroughs Large Systems; Burroughs Medium systems; Intel Processor based communications processor cards; Burroughs CP9500/B900.
