James Bremner has more than 30 years experience in software engineering. Since 2001 he has operated Raven's Point Consulting, quickly delivering fast and reliable windows desktop applications for clients all round the world. Recent projects have included: * Control and monitor hundreds of individual heaters and thermometers in the manufacturing of wind turbine blades. * Control the cameras used to webcast the deliberations of a state senate. During the 90's James worked for network equipment companies - six years at Newbridge and two years as Principal Software Engineer at Mosaid. He was the architect for a North America wide ATM network requiring 15 40G backbone switches. He designed and implemented a verification and configuration application for a 10G Ethernet switch on a single chip with half a million registers of 263 different kinds. He has patents in packet traffic management and digital signal processing. During the 80's James worked for medical device company Theratronics. He wrote a 3D graphics package ( like today's OpenGL ) which interfaced with a mathematical model of radiation transport in tissue to provide interactive treatment visualizations in 3 seconds on a PDP11. James developed and implemented software quality assurance methods, upgrading and verifying a legacy code-base ( 600,000 lines of FORTRAN and assembler ) to the most stringent FDA medical device level - a task which required the entire staff of about a dozen for two years. During the 70's James worked for mining companies in Britain, Africa and Canada. He designed the signal processing and real time control software of an airborne system to measure the depth of permafrost over vast areas ( used to correct the results of seismic exploration results ) and flew the calibration flights. He built a computer simulation of a Zambian electrochemical cobalt refinery to control and minimize the recirculating load and providing a saving a several millions of 70's dollars. ## Area of Expertise * Windows desktop applications coded in C++ * Database driven web applications coded in python ( web2py )

  • image of banoffee10 MatrixVision camera integration £2000.00 GBP

    “A disaster! We already support a range of cameras so the Project Description was simple, cookie cutter the integration of another camera, we will supply you with a template camera, source code, binaries, test rig, remote desktop connection, demos, reasonable amounts of help, SDK, and documentation etc. Despite hundreds of emails James would only code the most narrow interpretation of a subsection of our project description. When we pointed out that his functionality did not match that of the test camera we supplied as a reference (along with matching source code, binaries, demos etc.) he would ask for additional information. However, if we provided any additional information he would cry foul saying that this information was not in the Project Description. If we said, fine then just code as per the Project Description, he said that he did not have enough information! Impossible. Unprofessional, unreliable, actually pretty rude and most importantly a complete waste of time.”
