I was born in (or around) 1973, so I am 49 in 2023. This info is usually frowned upon, but it's important in my case. I don't want to
appear much older.
1993 - Wrote a Gopher client in C , using TCP IP and sockets ( TCP/IP ).
1997 - 2004 - I spent over half this time developing for 2,000-employee software companies. I fixed ~100 bugs in C and SQL
in an ERP system used at a gold mine, power plant, copper smelter, etc. I was tuning 30 million row tables when that was a lot. I
did data analytics and warehousing when those were new terms.
2005 - present: The freelancing era. I freelance so I can work at night. As a freelancer, I take what I can get, so
I have done a dizzying range of projects, I often use tech I never have before, and I have shown over and over how fast I learn.
I do not have the sales skills for freelancing, though, so it's time to find a team with effective salespeople.
