Make software delight customer.
Veteran software engineering professional with vast experiences across development, consulting and support. Worked effectively for organizations of various sizes and industries.
I started my career doing CAD (Computer Aided Design) software development. In recent years I was mostly into enterprise systems development, as well as support (e.g., revenue accounting management, sales management, business process improvement), and mobile apps (iPhone/iPad/iOS). Technology-wise I evolved from C/C++, C#/VB .Net, to J2EE, web service, Objective C, Cocoa Touch; from backend to frontend. I’m also well-versed both in traditional waterfall and more recent agile approach, in terms of software development methodology.
Fast learner; problem solver; team player.
Other interest: finance, investing.
I’ve been making a living as a software developer for about 15 years. In my spare time I’m interested in iOS/Java app development, personal finance and investing. You can see a short bio of me at uudaddy.com. As you can see, in this blog I am mainly talking about software development in general, and iOS/java development. My github page here.
Below are my apps in the iTunes App store. I have not updated them since 10/2014 due to other priorities. I am slowly getting back to iOS dev lately due to the new tvOS which is very interesting (09/20/2015).

Whitney Houston. I was a big fan of her in college. I remember spent about 10 Yuan (remember at the time the monthly allowance was like 100 Yuan) to buy her album “Hero” when I was in college.
This is a song “When you believe“, sung by her and Maria Carey.
