I'm a software developer with a passion for quality programming. I enjoy nitty-gritty problem solving and have an interest in user interface design. I enjoy both frontend and backend development.
These are some of the things I have experience with and know (and am comfortable talking) about.

|C#||jQuery||Windows Driver Kit|
|LESS CSS / CSS / HTML||Visual Studio|
I was responsible for providing feedback to hardware architects and software developers regarding bugs, software or device usability. One of my proudest achievements here was using Windows Driver Kit (WDK) to create and maintain C++ applications that tested USB HID devices APIs as well as "stress tests".
I was responsible for creating a series of C++ applications to create a solution for localization issues. This involved processing and cross-referencing XML files to constrain input from a user based on data found in the files. This was accomplished with Visual C++ and XML parsing was done wiht SAX (Simple API for XML).
I was also responsible for developing a C# .NET application that displayed the difference between data found in an SQL database and an XML file. The application would generate an SQL script based on the user's input.
I started as a summer intern and was kept on part-time during the school semester (where I was later promoted to a developer position and then graduated). My main responsibilites included software and hardware debugging, data migration, quality assurance and database management tasks. I was able to gain some experience in web development using CSS, HTML and jQuery.
I abandoned my job as a truck driver to pursue my programming hobby as a career. I enjoy most things technology related and spend most of my time learning about them. I've got way too many hobbies. I've been playing guitar since I was 14, I read (mostly) non-fiction and enjoy studying science. I play hockey, cycle and do a good amount of programming outside of work. I'm also an aspring home brewer. So please, bring beer next time you stop by :)
