Porting a C++ server application from Win32 to Linux.

Worked on a server for push-E-mail (to cellphones), which needed porting from Win32 to Linux. Technologies used were: gcc/g++, vim, libcurl, GNU make, Ubuntu Linux, Perl and others.

2007 (for 3 months)

Tehuti Networks
Linux Kernel Developer and Tester

January 1997 - October 1997

Programmer and Tester

Testing a software-based modem (Modio), Windows 95 Programming. Manual testing of a soft-modem. Writing test procedures. Programming various utilities in Visual C++, MFC, and Perl.

I began working at SmartLink as a tester for their software-based modem which was based on a soundcard and implemented the connection logic and the DSP in software. I worked with Windows 95 and Windows 95 OSR2. When Smart-Link hired a dedicated and more experienced Q&A Engineer, I became a part-time tester/ high-level programmer/general jack-of-all-trades.

I worked with the Windows Drivers, MFC, Perl for Win32, DJGPP, Cygwin, a myriad of games and modem-related software, as well as Microsoft IIS.

April 1996 - October 1996

Cortext Inc.
Programmer, WWW Site Maintainer, Limited UNIX Maintenance

HTML composition, CGI programming, TCP/IP client/server programs.

Worked with Perl 5, various UNIX flavours (FreeBSD, IRIX, SunOS 4.1.3), and several Windows 95 workstations. Did web development using HTML, Perl and UNIX.

I worked at Cortext as a web-designer and CGI programmer. I worked with HTML, Apache, Perl, various UNIX flavours (FreeBSD, SunOS 4.1.3, IRIX) and Windows 95 Workstations. Built several sites there, while still using almost exclusively Perl due to my limited knowledge (at that point) of UNIX.

June 1995 - March 1996

Elpas Electro-optic Systems, Ltd.
Chief Programmer of EIRIS (Elpas Infra-Red Identification System)

Databases, client/server programs (with NetDDE), English/Hebrew MS-Windows GUI

Programmed using C and C++ on Windows 3.11. Experienced with networking, SQL, databases, ODBC, NetDDE, Borland C++ 4.5 and MSDN.

Elpas developed a network of sensors that was installed in each room of a building (say a hospital), and received input from infra-red badges. That made it possible to determine where each person or piece of equipment was located. I maintained the software that ran on a centralised computer, received the raw input from the sensors and processed it. My main issue was to replace an SCO UNIX server software with something internal of our own. We inspected working with Microsoft Access and ODBC, and eventually realised our own in-memory data managing was the most suitable solution due to the real-time nature of the application.

Specialised in Windows (16-bit) Programming, SQL, ODBC, ANSI C and C++. Worked primarily with Borland C++ 4.5 and the Microsoft Developer Network.

Freecell Solver is distributed under the public domain, and has been integrated into three Freecell implementations so far.

1997

MikMod for Java
Programmer

Converting a program from ANSI C to Java

Mod Files are music files whose instruments are given as samples, and are played at different notes and effects to create the melody. The conversion was done by converting to C++, and then several steps of Javaisation. The resultant code was working and produced good output, but was not very conformant to the Java style.
