Software Engineering Interests

I have a significant interest in almost all aspects of the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC). You could say my main professional interest —one that I’m truly passionate about— is in how to develop high quality software systems efficiently and effectively within budget and on time. To achieve this requires at least a minimum level of interest in almost every aspect of the SDLC.

I’m by no means an expert an all of the concepts, systems and ideas I’ve listed here, but I do understand their relevance and the potential impact that any one can have on a project. One of my great passions is expanding and piecing together my knowledge of these topics (and more) .
