After an extended job search, I recently gave up software consulting and moved from Nova Scotia to Vancouver, British Columbia to take a perm job with a wonderful software company. But the catch is that my wife is remaining behind until she graduates from art school. Read all about it in The Vancouver Diaries.
Besides writing programming tips, some of which are offered under Creative Commons license, I also play piano, and offer free music downloads, also under a Creative Commons license. If you live in Nova Scotia, check my concert schedule from time to time, and maybe you can catch a live performance. You can buy my compact disc at my performances.
I also wrote a popular article about free music downloads offered by many other independent artists.
I'm looking for a job in Silicon Valley.
I have twenty-two years experience as a software engineer. I am particularly good at C, C++, Objective-C and various assembly codes.
I have extensive Macintosh experience, not just Carbon and Cocoa user interface but also Mac OS X IOKit device drivers, and a fair amount of embedded experience as well.
Most of my driver work has been for storage using a variety of technologies: PCIe hardware RAID, FireWire/SBP-2, USB and iSCSI.
I've been running Linux since 1994, and these days have a Core 2 Quad Xeon box that runs Fedora. I have done a little Linux driver work as well.
I'll accept both contract our perm positions, and am available immediately.
Find me a job and I'll name my firstborn after you. :-D
Thanks for your help! -- Mike
I'm looking for a job as a Senior Software Engineer. I am no longer self-employed, but am looking for a perm job. I will take a contract to tide me over until I can find one, but only on a W-2 basis.
I have twenty-one years experience, twelve of them spent coding in C++.
Other strengths include Mac OS X (both UI and drivers, known in Mac-land as kernel extensions), Linux (userspace), embedded systems (mostly FireWire and storage), and various assembly codes.
I am one of the very best there is at low-level debugging.
You could really help me out if you forwarded the link to my cover letter or resume to anyone who might be interested. Perhaps you could get yourself a nice referral bonus.
Thanks! -- Mike

While quantities are limited, I don't want to bring any back home with me for want of takers.
If you can't make it to the conference, send your snail mail address to firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll be happy to mail you one. I'll send it anywhere in the world that the US hasn't embargoed.
If you want to arrange to meet up at the conference, email me at mdcrawford at gmail dot com. (It's hard to check my Ogg Frog mail when I'm away from my own computer.)
I expect I'll be wearing my Tilley Hat, but I have since grown a goatee (no moustache though; it's my experimentation with hipness.):

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.
