About me and this blog
My name is Arpad Toth and I’m a software developer. I started programming in high school and during this time I mainly coded in Pascal, Assembler and Delphi, I won various programming contest and I developed great interest in programming. Around 2005 I started my higher education, I actually have a bachelor of science degree in Computer Science and a masters degree in Web Technologies but that’s actually not that important. During my university years I also worked as freelancer and I made good money from PHP , FoxPro and Java applications while, in secret, during the nights, I fell in love with C. Also I joined a medical research team as a programmer: they did the research, I did the software. Two of most notable papers we published where:
- Software Simulation for Femur Fractures in Case of Frontal Car Accidents
- Experimental introduction of a software in the forensic probation expertise methodology for the period of conception in children regarding fatherhood confirmation
After graduation I started to work as a professional software developer for Computer Voice Systems, first as Java developer writing desktop applications then as C/C++ developer on the backend side, then as team lead / architect for various projects in various languages. Fast forward… after about 8 years, I think, I started my own startup with two friends, Interactions lab, and we produced some good products, the most successful is AgroGo, a trading application for agricultural markets. While this startup is still alive, It’s not a reliable source of income yet, so right now I also work as a consultant / software developer for another company. If that’s not enough, I sometimes get bored and I write on this blog and write my own Android applications… just because it’s fun. You can check my production apps here.
