About Charlie

I've been working with computers and writing code in one form or another for about 30 years. I started out with Turbo Pascal and Delphi, spent time with Java, C++, Python, and Perl, and then spent a number of years working in C#. Recently my focus has been on teaching JavaScript, HTML and CSS at Bellevue College. My focus is on Node JS, ES6, React and Express.

I've spent most of my career in industry, working first for Borland, then for a start-up in Silicon Valley, and until a few years ago I was at Microsoft on the C# team. Over the last few years, I've been interested primarily in Agile Development, the cloud and various mobile devices.

In my classes, I explore the ways we write web and mobile applications that use Cloud services. I'm also looking to learn new ways to use virtual machines, cloud resources, and mobile devices.

I enjoy hiking, snow-shoeing, swimming, reading and watching movies. I also like to write. I'm known in the computer world primarily as a book author: My Books
