After programming computers for fifty years, I still enjoy creating clean, readable code. Elixir and Phoenix are my choices for web development, but I frequently use Ruby for smaller scripts. A prototype version of my current project (Pete’s Alley) is available online:
I’ve also done a lot of writing, editing, and documentation review. For example, I reviewed and (lightly) edited the UNIX “man pages” for Apple’s initial release of Mac OS X. I also developed a mechanized documentation suite for the Flight Software on the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope’s Large Area Telescope. My writing has been published in MacTech, SunExpert, and Unix Review, along with several software collections I created for Prime Time Freeware.
I’m available for short term and part time assignments, doing design, development, and documentation. Although I strongly prefer to work remotely, I’m happy to attend meetings in the SF Bay Area and (occasionally) elsewhere.
