I have over twelve years experience developing applications especially in the Windows environment. I am an expert level Visual C++/MFC/ATL developer and Visual Basic developer. I am also well versed in many Internet techologies. I have had extensive experience with multimedia development under Windows. During my career I have also managed numerous software projects through the entire development life cycle. I am currently a freelance coder. A more formal detailed resume is available through special arrangements.

Career Projects
  • Developed a Domain Name Tracking application for domain sellers. The application comes in two flavors: a traditional Windows application and a web-based ASP application. The Windows front-end was created using Visual Basic, UML, and ADO. The ASP front-end was developed using Visual InterDev, VBScript (server side), JavaScript (client side), HTML, and ADO. The database back-end started as Microsoft Access and then was migrated to SQL Server 2000.
  • Developed a Microsoft Windows-based graphics library. This library is designed for speed and has a small code footprint. Created routines for loading/saving graphic files in industry standard formats, color space conversions, palette creation/manipulation, etc. The library was developed with Visual C++, MFC, COM+, and inline assembly. It is distributed as a DLL, static C library, MFC Extension DLL, and as an ActiveX control while maintaining a single code base.
  • Developed a Visual Studio Add-In that creates “skinnable” MFC Projects. This allows an end-user to create user interface “skins” for an application created with this Add-In. Developed using Visual C++, COM+, XML, and Active Script.
  • Developing PC game using the Half-Life SDK. The game has both a single player and a multi-player cooperative mode. Currently developing new AI routines. Using Half-Life SDK, Visual C++, WorldCraft, MilkShape 3D, and Wise Installation System.
  • Developed a Reports Server for a telecommunications company using ASP, VBScript, and IIS. This allowed financial, production, and regulatory reports to be delivered on-demand through a web browser.
  • Developed web-browser based applications enabling the creation of video e-mail and video greeting cards using Visual C++, MFC, ATL, COM+, UML, Netscape Plug-In SDK, Java, JavaScript, DHTML, ASP and SQL Server 2000.
  • Co-developer of StarFX, an application enabling the addition of real-time video effects to any existing video capture application without the need for additional programming. Video effects such as overlays, text, rotation, embossing, and background replacement can be added to a video stream in real-time. StarFX was developed using Visual C++, MFC, COM+, and Wise Installation System.
  • Designed and implemented Video Intercept technology enabling video data to be intercepted, manipulated, and then delivered to a video-capture application. Video Intercept technology is one of the key components of the StarFX product. Each type of driver was developed to accommodate Windows 95, 98, and 2000 (DLL, VxD, and WDM). The technology was developed using Visual C++, inline assembly, Windows DDK, WINDBG, COM, and Wise Installation System.
  • Designed and implemented software licensing schemes enabling timed, usage-counting, or feature restricted demos with the ability to upgrade to a full working version through an Internet connection without the need for a user to type in or even remember registration codes. Developed with Visual C++, Visual InterDev, and ASP.
  • Designed and developed a Multimedia Encyclopedia System capable of delivering audio, video, and graphics tied together by a database. The system allowed a salesperson to create custom sales presentations using the data contained within the database. The database was capable of being synchronized remotely from a master database, which empowered a salesperson with access to the latest product and/or service information. The Multimedia Encyclopedia System was part of a Sales Force Automation (SFA) suite of applications. This system was developed using Visual C++, MFC, ODBC, Video for Windows, and Wise Installation System.
  • Designed and developed a Process Management System designed to automate the sales process. The system included a Contact Manager, Opportunity Manager, Sales Forecaster, and Sales Report Generator. All data was synchronized remotely to a master database, which assisted sales managers in accurately forecasting and reporting sales throughout all phases of the customer lifecycle. The Process Management System was part of a Sales Force Automation (SFA) suite of applications. This system was developed using Borland Delphi, ODBC, and Wise Installation System.
  • Developed Virtually There: Caribbean, a multimedia CDROM designed to present vacation information about the Caribbean. Developed using Visual C++, MFC, and Video for Windows.
  • Designed and developed software applications for public kiosks that sold calling services for local telephone companies. The software automatically uploaded service orders to a central processing server. Developed using Visual C++, MFC, and DVI.
  • Implemented numerous multimedia Computer Based Training (CBT) programs using integrated audio and video. Many of these training programs were localized to over twenty-five different languages including Chinese and Japanese. These programs were developed using Visual C++, MFC, and Video for Windows.

  Gives you more than your money's worth. The finished project was better than anticipated. He's great to work with, straightforward, and a skilled communicator.

Would hire him full-time if I had the volume of work. Knows cutting-edge stuff and what he doesn't know he learns quickly. I've used NamTac twice and will offer him more projects in the future.

  Neal did exceptional work for me. The project turned out to be larger than either of us expected; he stuck with it, and worked on it until everything was done. I will be working with him on many other projects in the future, and highly recommend Neal to anyone looking for the highest quality work.
