As a computer programmer by day, I have expertise in efficiently solving complex technology problems. Most of my time is currently spent as Senior Developer at Kinetic Data where I make Android and iOS apps. Previously, I was Senior Mobile Developer at :coderow where I also worked on Android and iOS apps before it was purchased by Kinetic Data in February 2014. Before moving to :coderow, I served as Director of Software Development for Irish Titan where I worked for over 3 years making web and mobile apps.
When I do get some free time I practice martial arts, and read & write Philosophy, both of which I whole-heartedly enjoy. And when I'm feeling particulariy motivated, I post articles on Techosophy.com
Whether you're looking for programming advice, need some work done, or have a philosophical dilemma, it never hurts to ask. In any case, feel free to email me at j at jpiche dot com. Or you can tweet me @jjpiche.
Reddit Roulette is a simple Android app written in Scala that serves one simple function: press a button and get a random image or link off of Reddit. It can be found at the Google Play Store.
Asteroid Velocity is a visually stunning 3D arcade style game built for iPhone and iPad. It is a unique yet challenging game where you can experience the thrill of piloting a highly maneuverable spacecraft through sequences of rings. 3D models for the game were designed in Blender while the game was built using C# in Unity3D.
Timesphere™ US Presidents allows users to control and manipulate a unique visual Timeline of all 44 US Presidents. Presented in both Spiral and Linear modes, US Presidents provides a unique approach to interactive education.
Like the calendar app of the same name, US Presidents was built using a combination of Objective-C and C# in Unity3D. However, with this project, I was the sole programmer and also managed the entire project.
Timesphere™ is a calendaring system for iOS which allows the user to interact with time and their calender in 3D space. This project was extremely complex and used a number of languages, and technologies; among those include: C#, Objective-C, Unity 3D, OpenGL, and some Cg. My involvement included all graphics programming, iOS interfacing, and oversight of all development, while 3D modeling was done by Morris FutureWorks.
Timesphere™ was developed October 2011 through January 2012 and was released to the App Store 7 February 2012.
Artisans iMerchandizing is an enterprise iPad app (thus not in the App Store) built for the custom clothing manufacture Artisans, Inc. The application portion of the project used Objective-C and iOS frameworks while PHP, MySQL and other web server technologies drive a server backend which provides authentication and delivers content to the application. The project was successful and the client was ecstatic to be able to move their books of sales materials to a single digital platform.
