I've been in the computer industry since about 1979 (I had a summer programming job after graduating from high school), and I've done a little bit of everything. I've programmed in ancient languages (BASIC, PL/I, COBOL, Lisp) and more recent ones (Perl, PHP, Javascript), with a few random assemblers thrown into the mix. I've been a system programmer, system administrator, tech support engineer, and performance engineer.

I'm currently working as a programmer for Bridge Base Online, the leading online site for playing bridge. I've been learning modern web application development in the process.

P.S. My name is barmar, not barman or barmer.
