About Patrick

I can provide a solid understanding of the concepts / building blocks for computer languages and development - primarily with the Java programming language. These building blocks help develop the core of future development understanding. From an object-oriented viewpoint, my first goals are to ensure the student understands the core concepts of the "bits and bytes", object identity, object storage, interfaces and how they are used in the "real world", and the basic java/C types, in addition to the core objects of the language itself. Until those concepts are mastered, developing in the language will always be a struggle.

I currently work in the corporate environment using Java/J2EE and the Spring framework. I am the senior technical architect of my division, and am the technical interviewer for prospective employees; I will teach you some of the core concepts that most folks I interview don't have the answer to.

I once struggled with math/programming but was fortunate enough to obtain an athletic scholarship to an elite college where I was taught by world-class instructors (one worked on the Manhattan project), and realized my ability. That bridge of confusion to solid comprehension is what I would like to pass along to any person struggling with computer programming.
