You have reached Ed Paay's personal
I currently reside in Boise, Idaho, USA since 2000.
but I was born in Rotterdam, The Netherlands (South Holland) so I found some old pictures of Holland from about
a century ago that I put in the slider above. Pretty dorky I know but I wanted to try out the slider so
what can I say? I also lived in Australia for nearly 20 years so I consider myself a multi-national.
Since Boise is a small city with limited employment opportunities,
I mostly work as a
Consultant, usually as a Software Developer or Software Engineer but at times I will also work as a
Software Architect or as an Enterprise Architect. When the opportunity arises I like to be employed on a team to develop quality applications rather than short term contracts where one cannot take ownership of projects.
I am always working on some software project
to re-invent itself every 18 months or so when a new fad or technology
turns up and becomes popular. This means you have to
retrain yourself or you get left behind; therefore, I will inevitably
try out anything new to see what it is about and
if it is in fact useful. More often than not, I find I have been
doing something similar for years, but now there is a new name for it or
it has become “cool”. It is just how the business works, I guess
at least one does not get bored doing the same things.
As I am working, occasionally I need a utility application to do
something specific or I may create a framework or library that may be
useful to others. You will find these on the Downloads page. I
tend to add
content when time permits and content becomes available.
