Techno-Bio for Geeks and Recruiters
Walt is a Software Technologist and Coder.
I love solving hard problems and building software to do it. I've been building
commercial applications on desktops and servers for companies since the early 1980's.
I'm familiar with Unix, Microsoft, and Apple platforms and the web. I have held
many senior and leadership roles as Software Artchitect, Software Engineer, and
Application Developer. I enjoy working with code, different langauges, and
frameworks. I favor object oriented and functional approaches but know when to
dip into procedural solutions for low-level optimzations.
Walt is concerned about Quality.
I have a strong background in measuring, assessing, and mitigating risk.
In addition to testing systems, I enjoy making systems testable. I would
much rather build a system that can identify problems automatically during development
than one that requires extensive debugging after the fact.
Walt understands the importance of Configuration Management.
Change is good, it's what leads to progress. It should be trackable, testable,
historical, and undoable. I've been the Software Configuration Manager for a
number of commercial projects, enabling development teams to do ongoing parallel
development while assisting deployment teams with delivery.
Walt knows Security.
Whether architecture, design, code review, or business rules, security goes
beyond privacy, including authentication, authorization, data integrity,
nonrepudiation, and auditing. I've strengthened applications, hardened systems,
penetrated systems, performed packet anlysis, and helped companies with
exploits. I've helped build with eCommerce servers. I encourage people to
Walt also does IT, Administration, and Support.
I've provided professional support before, dealt with trouble tickets,
designed networks, setup systems, and managed a number of infrastructure
systems for over a decade.
Walt can Write, Teach, and Present information.
I've written a number of user guides and training manuals, authored technical
documents, developed classes, and provided instruction in a number of fields. I'm
well versed in a number of word processing, page layout, and graphic tools.
Many of my presentations are not just on paper, but also multi-media and video.
Walt is a professional Consultant.
I have done many independent consulting jobs and have also worked for consulting firms.
My passion is software development on a commercial application, but my consulting
background has given me experience working face to face with end customers. I'm
a good problem solver with access to a lot of equipment, resources, and domain
Walt does professional Product Evaluations, Reviews, and Editing.
Companies with new software packages have called on me to help improve usability
of their products, develop targeted marking material, and produce competitive
analysis. If you're a commercial software developer or project manager, it's very
likely that you use some tools where I played an important roll behind the scenes.
I also do book reviews and edit content for well known publishers, helping to
ensure the material is understandable and applicable to their audiences.
Walt is fun.
