In the fall of 1963 he took the first COBOL course taught at Purdue University, where the first U.S. computer science department was later created. The next spring, undergraduate student David was assigned to teach the graduate level class. Since that time, David has been an active participant in each step of computing technology: from the early mainframes to today?s technology, from binary assembly coding to C/AL. He has worked with over 40 different models and brands of computers, over a dozen operating systems and over two dozen different programming languages.
Special projects include the development of the first production SPOOL system in 1967. In the decades following, David was project manager and lead developer for several commercially distributed business application systems. Application areas in which David has worked range from engineering to manufacturing to freight carriage to general accounting to public mass transit to banking to not-for-profit and association management to legal billing to distribution/inventory management to shop floor data collection and production management.
