At ISC, my team took a "wholistic" approach to training and first spent a significant amount of time engaged with the customer and learning where they had training gaps that could be improved by a mix of computer-based learning, games, and simulations. Over a span of two years, we developed over 200 hours of interactive courseware, 2 flash games, and one immersive VR simulation.
I've been programming for as long as I can remember, and the list of languages and technologies I've worked with would stretch on for pages. I started writing code at age 11 on a Commodore 64 with C64 Basic and have done a little bit of everything since then. The list highlights some of the things I've worked on recently and enjoy.
