Attention potential employer,

Introducing Mr. Brian Vogl applying for the position of Software Developer / Engineer: As an experienced Software architect and engineer I’ve worked on high visibility projects coordinating closely between management and customers and working with team members to incorporate engineering requirements into marketable working products. As an experienced computer hardware and software R&D professional I have developed many commercial hardware solutions and computer programs now in use. I’ve coded both back and front end of multi user systems for desktops, palmtops and in the cloud, done real time event driven programming on single and multithreaded systems, integrated radio systems to GIS Systems for Mobile Mapping and Command and Control, Inventory, Distribution, Sales and support. I’m an engineering problem solver “fix it” guy capable of adapting to fluid situations. My experiences are broadly based ranging from video, electronics and embedded processor thru robotics engineering into software design and development. My goal is to design and implement useful devices, software solutions and systems to provide worthwhile information to assist others to develop products and computer applications for individuals and industry. I have working level knowledge and experience with the following: OS: Android, Windows & Linux. Programming languages: Assembly (Motorola & Intel), MS (C, C++, Visual C++, C#, Dot NET, MFC, STL, ATL (COM, DCOM), VB, VBA, VB Dot NET), Java, Javascript, Node, Electron & React.
