Six Questions with Sean
When did you first start programming and with what language/computer and what did you like the most about this programming experience?
My first experience with programming was when I went to work with my dad when I was about 9 years old. He was a programmer for GE in the nuclear energy division. He helped me write a small program to multiply 2 numbers together using punch cards and we got our result on a printout. I took the punch cards and printout into school for a report.
Describe a project you’ve been involved with which you consider to be your greatest success so far. What made it so successful?
My first job programming was as an intern programming in C\C++ for a company that did radiation treatment planning. We build a system that would calculate the dosage each part of the body would receive during a radiation treatment and display it to the doctor so they could plan and adjust before administering the treatment. The job was hugely satisfying as I helped people dealing with cancer get better treatment.
What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learned so far in your career?
I like to think that I have learned to actively listen to people better and not always jump to a solution.
If computers and related technology didn’t exist, what do you think your career would be?
I would probably still be in the military.
When it’s time to turn off the computer, what do you do instead?
Wait, computers have off buttons? I play video games so my machines are never off. I am also a horrible golfer, but I have fun.
Anything else you think the world would like to know about you?
I don’t drink coffee.
