Some of my favorite programs..
Some people refer to me as "Flash Master Jim", but I'm not a master yet-- not even close. I love creating fun / useful software, and I'm constantly acquiring bits of knowledge to get me me there. I have a passionate for learning how to create software successfully, and I seek out books, videos, events, and developers all the time to continuously expand my knowledge of this crazy game know as software development.
Student of The Game
Following a modern style of tech manager, I believe that programmers should be working together through the entire development process. I believe in a hardcore XP TDD culture with pair programming, unit tests, collective code ownership, and all the other benefits of developing in this fashion.
My experience building games and applications is (mostly) desktop flash and mobile AIR (starling) actionscript 3. Although I do enjoy as3 the most, my OOP skills and mindset can be transferred to different languages as I am also familiar with TypeScript, Objective-C, .NET, Java, and Python.
