Bacon Patrick 2014 Web

I've been a consultant and developer at Atomic Object since 2005. I've got a B.S. in Computer Science from Michigan State University, and prior to Atomic, I worked for a number of companies including Texas Instruments, Raytheon, and Bank of America.

Over the course of my career I've worked on software projects in TypeScript, Ruby, Objective-C, JavaScript, Java, C#, C++, C, Perl, Python, and Groovy, while building web applications, mobile applications, desktop applications, and countless tools/utilities.

Since joining Atomic I've worked on projects for customers across North America from Victoria, BC to San Francisco to Boston. Some of these projects include:

  • Quell, an iOS and Android Bluetooth Low Energy companion app to the Quell pain relief product.
  • LifeConnect, a profile and care application for senior living communities developed with HTML5 offline capabilities.
  • Manage by AGI, a web-based prioritization manager.
  • Realius, a Fantasy Real Estate web game written in Ruby on Rails.
  • PersonalDesigner, a kiosk application written using Open Laszlo and Java.
  • Real-Time control software controlling robot hardware that could drive a manual car on a dynamometer, written on QNX in C++.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family, playing basketball, golfing, photography, and cycling.
