Highly skilled systems architect and developer with more than 25 years of experience designing, developing and deploying applications, from old single platform “green-screen” to multi-tier / distributed systems. Business experience in manufacturing, accounting, distributing, payroll, finance and TELCO: ✔ Strong knowledge of Java SE and JEE stacks, from early versions 1.x up to latest version SE 7 and JEE 6. ✔ Deep understanding of old technologies such Cobol, ISAM, flat files, pipes, “green screen”, etc. This knowledge allowed me to design, code and implement integrations between new applications with legacy ones. ✔ Solid leading and mentoring skills to help and encourage individuals to maximize their productivity by applying the best practices, frameworks, libraries and technology in general. ✔ I'm always learning about new technologies and tools to ease and reduce time spent in application development and deployment. Technology by itself is worth nothing if it does not solve real world problems.
During the past several years I have carried over my experience from large, mid-range systems (AS/400 using COBOL and SYNON) to the area of web back-end development using PHP and MySQL. I seek opportunities to help you develop efficient back-end processing which will allow you to achieve success for your websites.
I have a BA (with honors) from the University of Iowa (also double majored in Linguistics). I also have a Web Development Professional Certificate from Minneapolis Community and Technical College. I have been developing apps for the iOS platform since 2009. I have also worked on native Android apps, and I have worked on and created several cross-platform hybrid apps using Apache Cordova (or Phonegap) as well as custom hybrid solutions. I am resourceful and self-motivated when finding applicable solutions to programming problems (it's like a fun puzzle...). In the past I always focused on Apple platforms and was an expert on the now antiquated Macintosh Toolbox of the 1990's. I used C/C++ on these old generation Macs and on UNIX boxes while studying computer science (we also used early Java on the workstations). I still have a sweet spot for native objective-c development on iOS. Recent projects have included custom Cordova / Phonegap plugins, applications which make use of bluetooth iBeacons (as well as Gimbal BLE beacons), and in the last year I have worked extensively with Location Services including GPS functionality and Geofences. In the early days of iOS development I worked a lot with audio processing and muti-touch interactions. I never really set out with the intent to become a project manager, but I communicate well and it seems my role in many gigs recently tends to creep in that direction.

Provide the highest of quality software engineering and development services for my clients. With over **20 years professional experience** and nearly **30 years programming experience**. I am educated in engineering and computer science and have a good base of knowledge of software engineering concepts and principals. See the following link for my philosophy [http://www.futureinfinite.ca/Content/OurCompany/HowWeDoThings.aspx]. If you are looking for something to be done; then I can do it - I have **never failed on any project I've worked on**. Explicitly I have worked quite a bit with Microsoft based languages, tools, and technologies: Visual Studio, MFC, C/C++, ATL, OLE, COM/DCOM, WFC, .NET, C#, VB, ADO, LINQ, LINQ to SQLT-SQL, Workflows, WCF, Configuration Services, Composite Applications, Distributed Systems, STL, to name a few and I have worked on many other non Microsoft tools and technologies. An area of specialization I have aquired over the past few years has been in the equities trading domain. I have spent the last 6 years developing a trading system and have had to become familiar with things like data aquisition, trading algorithms, and trade submision. I have used many different data feed providers (currently using TrackData services). I have developed a generalized trade request module (used by the clients of my system) and is currently configured to work with Interactive Brokers TWS [API]. The system has been optimized to process request in a very short timeframe. From aquisition to trade submission is between 2.5 and 5 seconds which is a very reasonable amount of time considering the amount of data being retrieved and processing occuring it. I pride myself on the ability to pick up new technologies and tools very quickly and efficiently. Everything in software development is based on some theory or concept; and understanding these theories and concepts is key in understanding how current and future technologies can be used. With others you will get a programmer with limited to no understanding of software engineering practices. With me you will get someone who knows how to take an idea, understand what that idea means; conceptualize it; logicalize it; organize it; design it, implement it, deploy it, and maintain it. In the end you will have deliverables of the highest quality that can easily grow as your project grows. Nothing in software is static; and I make sure that it isn't. I absolutely love software development and taking an idea and engineering it into a product. It gives me a great deal of pleasure in producing excellent products. Let's work together; let's make your product excellent. Peter Simard Future Infinite Simulations : http://www.futureinfinite.ca/Content/OurCompany/HowWeDoThings.aspx
My 25+ year career in IT has taught me this: It is impossible for me to list or summarize what I know without sounding cocky, arrogant or presumptuous. Humbly, I’ll just say that when I started programming, I believed that we would never need more than 64K of RAM. Today, I stand by my belief; however, I’ve been known to use slightly more!
