Listed on this page are various pieces of software I've worked
on over the years. Some of the software mentioned
is public domain and available for download. Some of this software
was developed while working with a team of developers and some was
developed exclusively by me. I am a strong supporter of the
free software model
and will continue developing and releasing free software as time permits.
If you are interested in sponsoring or collaborating with me
on a software development project or just happen to
have some ideas that might be translatable into cool
and useful software, please
Open Source Software
These programs were developed to run under variants of
the Unix operating system. My primary development
platform is and will likely continue to be the
Linux operating system (hence the linux penguin logo).
- This is an interactive program for viewing and manipulating 3D (and
higher dimensional!) objects. It can be used as a standalone viewer
for static objects or as a display engine for other programs
which produce dynamically changing geometry. My main contribution
to this team project was working with Tim Rowley to port the
program from Iris-GL to generic X11 making it available for use
on a much larger number of platforms.
- This is an simple Java applet for viewing 3D objects. Though
the applet has more limited functionality than Geomview, it does
have the added benefit of being embeddable in a web page and is
entirely platform independent. Also, object data can be stored
and updated server side providing flexibility for many uses
- (JGV Enhanced at Sourceforge)
- (Original JGV Version from Geometry Center)
- A module for animating sequences of object files in Geomview.
This module replaced and extended the functionality of a previous
animator module written by Stuart Levy.
Mpeg Player for X
- This program added a VCR like (motif) interface to the MPEG Video
Decoder libraries being distributed from Berkeley. It was one of
the earlier helper applications to be used with Mosaic for viewing
Mib (Motif Interface Builder)
- To create the user interfaces for some of the above programs, I
decided to write a quick and dirty drag&drop style user interface
builder on top of a subset of the Motif widget library. The result
was Mib, a simple (though never complete) user interface builder
that allowed the visual creation of a user interface as well as
the ability to dynamically load the interface at runtime.
Software Developed for Clients
These are software projects I've worked on as a consultant.
Obviously, this software is not public domain, so don't bother
asking me for it!
Vehicle Order Management System
- This application is used by all Harley-Davidson dealerships world-wide to
enter and manage vehicle orders as they are shepherded through the
Integrated Login / Common Profile
- This customer facing application provides a common security
model and unified user login/profile database for all existing
web-based B2C applications at Harley-Davidson.
FastParts Trading Exchange
- The exchange is a web based electronic marketplace that allows
OEMs, contract assemblers, component manufacturers and franchised
distributors to buy and sell batches of new electronic components
anonymously, quickly and cost-effectively. I designed and
developed a good portion of the exchange software while
working with a great team of programmers.
Process Diagram Editor
- Under contract to Motorola I developed a process diagram editor
and browser completely in Java as well as a server to provide
file I/O via TCP/IP socket code.
- Working as a consultant for Concerto Capital Management, I constructed
a suite of java applets providing an interactive web-based front end to
a database of predictive indexes used by stock traders. The applets
graphed historical stock data and allowed traders to perform a
"what-if scenario" simulation on how successful they would be if
they had made investments based on previous predictions.
Though the Conductor is no longer online, Concerto Capital Management
survived and later became Concerto Tech, then BigCharts.com.
