Hi. Welcome to my blog.
I’m Timothy Moore and I’ve been a professional programmer for 25 years. I started programming in 1980 using Fortran and early versions of SAS; started using C in 1983; and I have used C++ almost exclusively since 2000.
I develop software for Electronic Design Automation (EDA) tools used in the design of integrated circuits. This is a challenging development area where applications are faced with long run-times and large memory requirements. I feel that C++ is the perfect language for EDA as it allows for nearly bare-metal efficiency while having a high level of abstraction, generic programming capabilities, and deterministic memory control/deallocation.
Given my experience with C++, I will mostly concentrate my writing on this language but will the occasionally write about assembly language programming, OpenCL, and maybe a few personal posts thrown in for good fun.
