Hi, I’m James Adam. I’ve had a passion for software development since I first started tinkering with BASIC on the family Apple ][e as a child. From BASIC I progressed to C on DOS/Windows and built my first website, an online bulletin board system, with HTML and Perl as a teenager. I went on to graduate with my Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science in 2002, and after a four-year stint as an Army officer, I started doing software development professionally in 2006. I’ve been mostly working on modeling and simulation software systems and web services in the Defense industry. I also pursue personal projects in web development in my spare time.
I currently live in Alaska with my wife Debbie and our three children.
I decided to put up this site as a place to collect my thoughts on software development and other areas of interest to me. I hope that others can find some value in it, but if not, that’s ok too.
