Author Biography - Joseph Rattz

Joseph C. Rattz, Jr., unknowingly began his career in software development in 1990 when a friend asked him for assistance writing an ANSI text editor named ANSI Master for the Commodore Amiga. A hangman game (the Gallows) soon followed. From these compiled BASIC programs, he moved on to programming in C for more speed and power. Joe then developed applications that were sold to JumpDisk, an Amiga disk magazine, as well as Amiga World magazine. Due to developing in a small town on a fairly isolated platform, Joe learned all the wrong ways to write code. It was while trying to upgrade his poorly written applications that he gained respect for the importance of easily maintainable code. It was love at first sight when Joe spotted a source-level debugger in use for the first time. Two years later, Joe obtained his first software development opportunity at Policy Management Systems Corporation as an entry level programmer developing a client/server insurance application for OS/2 and Presentation Manager. Through the years, he added C++, Unix, Java, ASP, ASP.NET, C#, HTML, DHTML, and XML to his skill set, while developing applications for SCT, DocuCorp, IBM, and the Atlanta Committee for the Olympic Games, CheckFree, NCR, EDS, Delta Technology, Radiant Systems, and the Genuine Parts Company. Joe enjoys the creative aspects of user interface design, and he appreciates the discipline necessary for server-side development. But, given his druthers, his favorite development pastime is debugging code. Joe can be found working for the Genuine Parts Company the parent company of NAPA in the Automotive Parts Group Information Systems department, where he works on his baby, the storefront web site. This site for NAPA provides the stores a view into their accounts and data on a network of AS/400s.
