I'm Ian Goodsell, a software developer who is currently creating internal developer productivity tools for Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems. I was formerly one of the developers at Compuware's NuMega Lab in New Hampshire, working on DevPartner Security Checker, an award-winning ASP.NET security analysis tool and DevPartner Studio as a developer working on automated software quality tools. I worked for Compuware from 1998-2007, working in Technical Support and Quality Assurance for BoundsChecker prior to moving into a development role. I've also acted as a CMM auditor, conducted a webcast on code quality, and made large contributions to teams that created some of Compuware's CMMI and Business Continuity processes.
Prior to my life in hi-tech:
But enough about work.I've worked with Tom Silva repairing walls in my kitchen on Ask This Old House, left a number of large divots on the 14-17th fairways at Pebble Beach (sorry about that), dug a trench for a french drain in the middle of a heat wave, lucked into tickets for game 5 of the 2004 Red Sox-Yankees ALCS, and built my own digital video recorder using an old Pentium 4 that is the envy of all my friends. I rooted for the New England Patriots when they were 1-15, and believe Pat's Steaks are the best in Philly. I also love being a dad.
There's a book in me, I know it. In the meantime, be sure to check out my blog to get updated on my latest adventures.
