Yes, it is true. In addition to working on nuSpin, I have been taking on a number of software contracting jobs as they come along. I enjoy taking on new tasks and seeing projects through to completion. It is a great way to pick up on the latest improvements in software development and make new connections. Every once in a while I discover a new part of software development that I enjoy.
Here are a few recent jobs I worked on:
Online Video Editing Software
I helped VidMaker with their back-end audio rendering pipeline on a Linux server. This included creating an effect routing mechanism, implementing audio filtering and creating a smart limiter. I also got to learn to use the Eclipse editor, got experience with QT, Node.js, and QMake.
Various WordPress Websites
I have helped a few organizations update their WordPress websites with content migration, layout, organization, and writing custom theme templates in PHP. This blog is a WordPress blog and yes, I have tweaked the theme from time to time. I learned to use the Sublime text editor on these projects, as Visual Studio tends to get in the way.
Audio Signal Processing
I helped one startup understand the nature of filtering and signal detection for a product they are working on that needs to detect certain sounds. I came up with an algorithm and got them started implementing it in Java.
I have really enjoyed these jobs and look forward to taking them on! If your company is looking for a contractor with my skills, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
