A Career in Data Processing

My first computer experience was in 1963 as an undergraduate at Georgia Tech. Working with a professor in the Electrical Engineering department, I programmed the "Optimization of Symmetrical Partitions." This was later used for the optimal arrangement of electrical cores.

At Bell Laboratories, I was assigned to the Submarine Cable department and programmed simulations of electrical coronas (sparks) in submarine repeaters (amplifiers).

At Data, Inc, I worked with programming team designing a electrical component catalog storage and computer photocomposition output system in IBM mainframe assembler code. I later designed and programmed a subscription fulfillment system in COBOL.

Starting my own business in 1981, I did system programming for IBM mainframes using the DOS/VSE operating system. Later, I wrote two programs for the personnel computer: Index Manager®, written in pc assembler code, this was one of the first B+ tree file indexes for BASIC and C programmers, and Stock Partner®, a fundamental stock investment analyzer written in Foxpro. Today I specialize in Internet programming using Coldfusion, SQL, and Javascript. Using these tools, I help developer a web site for legal automobile advertising (not currently online) and a web site for bank real estate insurance processing.

My lastest project is Chochmah™, a Hebrew date scheduler for BlackBerry phones which was implemented using BlackBerry Java.
