I had a major role on many of the first in the development and application of electronic toll collection (especially all-electronic tolling – AET). I have also been part of the management team as a vendor, consultant, and owner. I, therefore, likely seen the gamut of major management challenges in this arena and would like to pass on some of this knowledge to others in the industry.
I was introduced to C++ programming nearly 10 years ago. Since then, and till this very moment, I have been totally interested in it. I have been exposed to big-sized C and C++ projects in different areas of engineering, including machine learning, robotic control and digital signal processing. Such thing helped me develop a solid understanding of programming concepts, and enforced my ability of using different kinds of algorithms and data structures efficiently.
I am used to developing applications from scratch, the thing I believe to be an important point when it comes to mentoring, for I would be able to help you to comfortably utilize the basic building blocks of a programming language to accomplish nearly any goal you want.
