I'm a software engineer currently developing iOS apps at Dexcom. I've previously worked on map apps at Esri, embedded avionics software for JSF (F-35), network planning software to optimize use of satellite constellations, compiler/debugger development at TeleSoft, operating systems at SofTech Microsystems, and many other projects.

I specialize in communications and navigation systems as a result of my experience with amateur radio and aviation.

I started out as a radio/computer technician, then programming in 6502 assembly, designing hardware and software for the single board Apple II many years ago. Then worked on operating systems at SofTech Microsystems, Ada compilers at Telesoft (aka Alsys, Aonix, Atego), before moving on to embedded software development and mobile applications.

Thanks for the link, that's a very helpful page.

comment solve for time given distance, initial velocity, and acceleration
It looks like there may also be the case where there is no real solution (where the discriminant < 0). I'll have to deal with that situation in the software also. Thanks!

In this case $dx$ and $v_i$ are positive but $a$ can be negative.
