I, Aaron Curley, am a software engineer. I currently work as a professional in the computer science field. I hold a Bachelor of Science in Software Engineering from the University of Michigan – Dearborn and a Master of Science in Computer Science from the University of Tulsa.
Software development is my hobby as well as my career choice. I prefer native code and dislike the current trend of replacing native code with interpreted languages. Granted, languages like .NET and Java are an absolute dream to develop in (and I’m pretty good at these languages), but the .NET hype is somewhat ridiculous; most of what is done in .NET could be done with a sufficiently diverse class library in native languages.
I also have very considerable interest in the fields of Information Assurance and Reverse Engineering (which I find typically go hand-in-hand). After all, who can resist firing up Ollydbg and figuring out why your old Windows 95 game doesn’t work anymore on Windows 7?
As of late, I’m finding it difficult to get started on new programming projects (my job keeps me pretty busy), so I’ve started cultivating an interest in electronics / computer engineering. I’m very much a newbie in this area, but thus far, I’ve successfully produced a USB cartridge reader for old game boy games. Additional electronics projects are pending!
I was very active on a number of web forums in my teenage years. As I matured, however, I decided that I have other priorities in life. As a result, my web presence is currently limited to this web site and my Twitter account (handle: @aaronccurley). Personally, I’m a face-to-face kind of guy, but if I used to regularly communicate with you online, you should still drop me a line!
I am a practicing Roman Catholic christian. God and Christ are the center of my life (although this is still a work in progress 😉 ).
One last thing – something I absolutely hate is web design. So, don’t expect this site to be that fancy or be updated that often…
