I got hooked on programming in 1980 at Argonne National Labs when they got an Apple ][ and were looking to make it do something. I wrote a data collection and plotting program that automated a lot of drudgery out of the environmental studies lab and I've never looked back. I've spent all but six years as a consultant learning new businesses and coding up solutions. I have a particular fondness for embedded systems. Now I find myself spending more and more time creating online video training courses for programmers.

My latest Pluralsight course - Qt Quick Fundamentals went live on Pluralsight at the end of October 2014. The third and final course in the trilogy Integrating Qt Quick with C++ will be playing in a browser near you in February 2015.

I also have two earlier courses from 2013 The Eclipse Guided Tour - Part 1 and Part 2

comment How should I go about choosing a beginner drum kit?
One thing to not skimp on is a good throne. You almost always have to buy these after the fact. If you find that you stick with drumming and start doing more than 2 hours a day, you'll find spending money on a high quality throne is worth every penny and allows you to practice longer. Of course that might not do much to help your marriage, for that you need an electronic kit!
