About Conrad T.

📖 Summary

My Overview Since 1995, I have served as a software engineer within several different industry sectors: educational, financial, entertainment, and government. I am usually responsible for full life-cycle development of next-generation software, from initial requirement gathering to design, coding, testing, documentation, and deployment. My technical expertise includes cross-platform proficiency in Mac OS X, UNIX, and Linux, as well as a fluency in several different programming languages that include Smalltalk, Ruby, Objective-C, and HTML. Also, I have a worker knowledge of software best practices, applications, tools, and methodologies which include use cases, test driven development (TDD), object oriented analysis (OOA), object oriented design (OOD), object oriented programming (OOP), and the unified modeling language (UML). One day, I will start my own amazing company but for now I am taking on the challenge of helping existing organizations deliver great products and services for their customers. Also, I prefer remote contract or remote full-time positions at this time. Lastly, please refrain from asking me for referrals when you contact me.
