I am a software engineer and occasional development manager with over 25 years experience writing production code, mostly in C++. During that time I’ve worked on anything from Windows device drivers when people said you couldn’t write those in C++, to financial trading applications.
I have an interest in programming languages in general and am a firm believer that you cannot call yourself an experienced software engineer if you aren’t able to write good code in multiple programming languages. I also strongly believe that constant learning and honing the craft of software engineering is imperative if we ever want to get to the point where we as a profession can consistently deliver high quality software.
