My name is Jason C. McDonald. I am the CEO and Lead Developer at MousePaw Games. Our mission is to create educational software for use in schools and at home, that entertain and engage kids of all learning styles, even those with disabilities. (Connect with me on LinkedIn)
I have experience with the following IDEs: Visual Studio 2010/2012, IDLE, PyPE, Adobe Flash Professional CS.5/CS6, and CodeBlocks.
As a significant component of one of my projects, I wrote a proprietary scripting language.
I am familiar with many operating systems, including Windows 98, XP, and 7, 8, Mac OS X, Ubuntu, and Fedora. I know how to do most OS software repairs, and I remove malware and clean Windows systems as a hobby.
I am also an author, and I write and speak on the subject of programming - most recently, "A Field Guide to Common Nerds."
Aside from programming, I am a fiction author, a writing coach, and pianist, guitarist, and composer. You can find that side of me here.
