Billy Reisinger :: Resume
I enjoy programming software, and I have been doing so since 2002. I am skilled with many of the technologies that power web applications - from databases to user interfaces. I thrive on solving complex problems and I love working in a team.
I am passionate about doing excellent work , and I take responsibility for making software awesome. I deeply believe that excellent software starts with me being excellent, and continues with me being excellent to those around me. I love to be around people, and I want the software that I work on to make a positive impact in their lives.
Lastly, I think that having a sense of humor about stuff helps you not die.
