I've worked as a Software Engineer/Consultant for 15 years on ITAR controlled DO-178B mission critical projects as well as commercial applications. I'm an Engineering Fellow at the Manpower group and have worked as a Computer Scientist for US Defense projects through Honeywell Aerospace.
Learning to write software is an essential 21st century skill.
You can earn a decent living doing software, it just depends on how much you practice! Being able to visualize the key concepts in a simple way is important. I'll guide you through the pitfalls of getting bogged down with esoteric language features versus practical concepts. We'll make sure your fundamentals are clear and most importantly, we'll have fun doing it. I've taught 12 year olds to 50 year olds.
For homework and programming assignments that I give you to practice, you can call text or email me at no additional charge in between sessions if you're stuck.
Just like learning a musical instrument, practice is the key. You've to bring in your idea and your passion and dive into it. In time, magic will happen.
I've had some great teachers along the way and blessed to have a career doing what I love. Money is good and everyone needs it, but that's not my focus. If you can't afford the rate right now, just let me know and we can work it out.
Let me know if I can help.
Let's start at the beginning. Well, almost at the beginning. There was Assembly, yes, I coded in that language for a while, moving hex codes into different registers. After a few programming languages came tumbling down, C was born.
C soon became the father of functional programming languages. The concepts defined in C became the inspiration for all other languages that are in use today that have any practical use!
If you know C, you'll be able to pick up C++ easily. C++ has two parts. Object Orientation, which is a fascinating field of study on its own and then the implementation of these concepts which are pretty much written in the same syntax as C.
I encourage every beginning programmer to pick up a book on C and flip through the pages with a cup of coffee and a notepad. Enjoy the legendary program that changed the world as we know it.
Object oriented programming is to functional programming what our right brain is to our left brain!
C++ is fun, great to look at and it feels like designing parts of a dream machine, fitting them together, seeing it all come alive and taking off in front of your eyes.
From complicated math problems to real world physics equations to cutting edge graphics programming, C++ gives us the tools to create magic.
Object oriented programming (OOP) has 3 pillars - Data encapsulation, Inheritance and Polymorphism. Just like many colors of the rainbow are formed from 3 primary colors, many other concepts spring out of these 3 basic concepts. So, yes there are plenty of OOP concepts to keep you busy and make you feel like a snazzy pro once you learn to talk like a programmer.
If you can be a good programmer in C++ and STL (the standard template library) along with your knowledge of C, you can learn any programming language in the world within a month or maybe sometimes in a week.
But learning C++ will take some time and the only way to get good at it is to practice a lot. So be patient and keep coding.
I've taught folks who want to redefine their career or just want to take their career to the next level. I've had students who want to get a better job or just need a crash course to prepare for a job interview. Yes, they did ace those interviews and landed the jobs. Those are probably my most satisfying experiences and the reason I love to teach.
I've been a Software Engineer for more than 14 years, I have a Master's Degree in Computer Science from Arizona State University. I'm a fellow engineer with the Manpower group and have a few awards for my work on Computer Graphics technology for display sub systems in commercial and military aircrafts.
I have experience in Pentium and PowerPC devices/architecture. I am experienced in interfacing embedded systems with Windows, DOS and RTOS such as DeOS and HOS.
I graduated magna cum laude with a Master's degree in Computer Science from Arizona State University with the Regents Scholarship program.
I have 14 years of successful experience in programming and overseeing both high and low level software development. My primary job responsibilities have been design, development, programming, performance tuning, speed optimization and structural coverage analysis of software, firmware/embedded applications.
Sometimes syntax can be boring but the good news is syntax is the short and the easy part. The fun is in the logic. As learning to read music isn't the most exciting thing and you cannot really make good music by reciting the notes only, learning the syntax for a computer program alone will not make you a good programmer. I'll help you to develop your sense of logic, appropriate algorithms and practical data structures. I can help you to learn the concepts of Software Engineering and Software Design - how to identify and apply the correct Object Oriented Programming patterns to real world problems.
Whatever you do with it, have fun. It is a fun language. The most fun a language has ever been. You'll create things faster, create websites to online games and deploy it over browsers running on PCs, Macs and mobile devices. You'll want to do more with it everyday.
I've been a freelance photographer for about 10 years. I did glamour photography for the mobile market for clients including Maxim online, Sprint, Verizon and AT&T through a distributor named AskUs Media.
I write a blog on photography teaching aperture, shutter, ISO and how to get a good exposure.
I have sold my fine art collection through art galleries and boutique salons. If you need to understand how to capture the world around you and make it look like a place we dream of, just email me and I'll be there in good light.
AWESOME TEACHER — Bivas is better than you could ever hope for in a teacher for programming. His knowledge and practical experience working in the field doing truly incredible things shows in your first meeting with him. I learned more in that first 1 1/2 hrs than I could have learned by myself in a month. Be like a sponge and ask questions, and Bivas will guide you at your pace for whatever quest you're on. Yo ...
