My history of programming goes back to the TI-99, Atari 800 and Apple II.

I attended Rutgers U. (1994-2000), started in engineering but landed in computer science.

I've been working as a computer programmer since 1998. Since 2000 I've been mainly a C# programmer.

The past 3 years I've been doing line of business application development, which I very much enjoy.

I like education very much which is why I enjoy this site and the ideas behind it. Collaborative learning is one of the most exciting thing about the internet to me.

I'm jealous of good technical writers.

My dream job is to one day work on cutting edge educational software.

comment From a sequence of sets that transitions from all same value to completely random, how to know when it's made the switch?
Yeah, that's a good point for me to remember. I sometimes get caught up writing the most to succinct code I can and skip over a detail like that...

comment How to convert pitch and yaw to x, y, z rotations?
I'm kind of learning as I go - my goal is to get the effect of a motor boat in 3D space, except when pitch is applied, the ocean surface tilts with it... does that makes sense? I appreciate any pointers.. from readon more on my own I think I might need to learn more about quaternions
