History

I originally became involved in open source as a Freshman in college. I wrote a multi-user chat program named BS on my university's public access UNIX system. This program began as a series of crude Bourne Shell scripts and eventually evolved into a rather powerful curses-based C program. I went on to write several other UNIX utilities, creating a reusable C foundation library along the way — this ultimately became cbase. I had officially entered the larval stage.

Upon entering the workforce, I gravitated toward Java, which became my language of choice for the next few years. However, my interest in Java quickly waned after I taught myself C++, and most of my current open source efforts are in C++. The commonc++ and libconfig projects are components of a larger C++ framework that I'm currently working on, and may actually release someday.
