I'm interested in high-quality solutions to tough problems. I co-founded <a href="http://encodo.com">Encodo Systems AG</a> almost 15 years ago. My focus has always been on generalization and DRY using metadata and common libraries. I've written five frameworks over the years: <ul> <a href="https://encodo.com/quino/">Quino</a> (C#/.NET, 2007--present) MAP (Swift/Java/TypeScript, 2016--present) <a href="{root}/software/webcore/">WebCore</a> (PHP, 2000--present) Test Engine (C++/MFC, 1995--2001) Atlas2 (Delphi Pascal, 2002-2005) </ul> This site runs on WebCore and Quino is the engine behind many Encodo products.</div> Content <div>In addition to the links above, I've also got content online in the following places: <ul> <a href="{root}news/view_user.php?name=marco">All Blog Articles</a> <a href="{root}albums/view_folder.php?id=2">All Photo Albums</a> <a href="{root}/users/marco/docs/">Papers, Notes, Research & Manuals</a> Instapaper (<a href="http://www.instapaper.com/starred/rss/1890855/5c1g08eoy9skhOr3tCGqTQbZes">Likes</a>, <a href="http://www.instapaper.com/archive/rss/1890855/5c1g08eoy9skhOr3tCGqTQbZes">Archive</a>) IMDb (<a href="http://www.imdb.com/user/ur1323291/ratings">ratings</a>, <a href="http://www.imdb.com/user/ur1323291/watchlist">watchlist</a>) <a href="{root}/users/marco/stats">Fitness</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/mvonballmo">Twitter</a><fn> Garmin Connect<fn> Strava<fn> </ul></div> Quizzes <div>For various reasons, these two quizzes (well, mainly one of them) have been the most popular hits on my site. <ul> <a href="{root}quizzes/view_quiz.php?id=1">Bush's First Year</a> <a href="{root}quizzes/view_quiz.php?id=2">Real or Fake?</a> </ul></div> Links <a href="{app}view_article.php?id=3874">Old Links</a> (e.g. <i>Old Man Murray</i>, <i>SeanBaby</i>, <i>SomethingAwful</i>) </dl> <hr> <ft>My Twitter feed is almost 100% automatically generated from <a href="{root}news/view_user.php?name=marco">my blog posts</a> and <a href="http://www.instapaper.com/starred/rss/1890855/5c1g08eoy9skhOr3tCGqTQbZes">my Instapaper likes</a>.</ft> <ft>No link because Garmin don't allow browsing activities, only linking to specific ones that are public.</ft> <ft>Same as Garmin, unfortunately.</ft>
