I'm currently a Java developer and product manager in the financial industry. I am currently working on lots of different projects, but I have focused on high-performance server work and Swing client work in the past. I've developed in multiple languages on multiple platforms, working seriously with PHP, ASP, Unix C/C++, MS SQL Server, and MySQL.

I take a very direct approach to programming. I don't bow to convention simply because it is. Remember that DOS was a standard at one point. Remember that Windows still is a standard. Does it work, yes, I suppose, most of the time it does. I would build it much differently.

comment Is it unprofessional to leave game resources to the open eye?
-1 This isn't really a "fix". The resources are still there available to the eye.
comment Per-Frame Function Calls versus Event Driven Messaging in Game Design
I disagree. If the overall object design is well encapsulated, it should be flexible enough to be used in any kind of framework. I have been able to swap out communication methods in large projects with very little work because each piece was well encapsulated.
