Welcome

My name is Robert Pinchbeck, and I am a professional software engineer specializing in Microsoft .NET development technologies. I have extensive experience with developing enterprise software applications using Microsoft development tools and platforms. I hold several Microsoft Developer Certifications including MCSD: App Builder, MCSD: Web Applications, MCPD: Web Developer, MCSD in .NET, and MCTS in SQL Server and .NET Framework. I am also a Certified Scrum Developer® and a Certified ScrumMaster®

Currently, I am a developer for an online accounting software company where I design, develop, and refactor web applications and services used by more than a million customers and their businesses.

I have expert technical qualifications with Microsoft tools and technologies including C#, ASP.NET, MVC, Visual Studio, SQL Server, Entity Framework, OData, Web API, JavaScript, HTML5, CSS, JSON, XML/XSLT, IIS, SharePoint, TFS, and all Windows desktop and server products.

Portfolio

To demonstrate the quality of my work and coding style, here are some sample projects that I have completed.


Human Hyperlink

Human Hyperlink
Demonstration

This application generates JavaScript code that creates a hyperlink which cannot be followed by robots (because robots don't run JavaScript yet). The generated script is randomized to prevent robots from detecting the hyperlink, and it is also minified for easy inclusion in web pages. This is a simple ASP.NET MVC Core 2.0 application running in a Docker container in the cloud (Azure).



ABNF To ANTLR

Demonstration
Application Source Code
Grammar Source Code

This is a simple web application I wrote to translate any ABNF grammar to an ANTLR grammar. The resulting ANTLR grammar should be syntactically correct; however, some ABNF grammars are inherently ambiguous and ANTLR will complain about them until the ambiguity is resolved by the user. The translator uses parser and lexer components generated by the excellent ANTLR toolset.



Imaging.NET

Imaging.NET Preview
Demonstration
(ClickOnce application requires Internet Explorer)
C# Source Code 

This is a fully managed .NET Windows Forms program that I wrote for my college course on machine vision. The application uses Click-Once Deployment and can run over the internet on any .NET  enabled platform.  As my final project for the course, Imaging.NET implements various image processing algorithms including filtering, thresholding, boundary following, component labeling, expanding, shrinking, and thinning.  Users can draw their own images using the image editor or load an image from disk.  An undo stack is provided for all editing and image processing operations.  For small images, animation is provided to demonstrate how each algorithm performs.  The program uses no third party controls; all features are written entirely in .NET.



College.NET

College.NET Preview
Demonstration
C# Source Code

This is a simple ASP.NET Web Forms program that I wrote to let my friends and family browse the details of my college experience.  The application is designed to work on both modern browsers and older browsers that don't support Javascript and/or Cascading Stylesheets.  The implementation relies on a Databound Custom Web Control that processes and presents the results of database queries in response to form submissions.  Users can sort, filter, and select different views of the data.



RedBlackTree.NET

Red Black Tree Preview
C# Source Code

This is a fully managed .NET implementation of the popular Red Black Tree data structure.  The class is enumerable and employs a top-down approach (no recursion and no parent pointers).  Because Red Black Trees are balancing binary trees, stored objects are automatically enumerated in sorted order.  Any objects that can be compared by the .NET framework (IComparable or IComparer) can be inserted and retrieved from the Red Black Tree in O(Log N) time.  This class is effectively obsolete, since .NET includes a SortedDictionary class which is just as efficient, but it was very handy for .NET 1.1 applications that needed a fast, sorted, enumerable data structure.  My original Imaging.NET application made extensive use of this class.



StringStream.NET

String Stream Emblem
C# Source Code

The .NET framework does not provide a native StringStream class.  This implementation of StringStream permits both read and write operations while guaranteeing space efficiency.  The StringStream keeps a reference to the initial string and uses it for read operations; however, if a write operation is attempted, the StringStream converts itself into a MemoryStream for all future operations.



U.S. Census Publications Database

Download Sample Database

This application is used by all U.S. Census Research Data Centers to track their projects and publications.  The application is implemented in Microsoft Access with tables to store projects, status, authors, titles, editors, publishers, places, and other similar information.  Users enter data on a master form that provides several detailed views.  Specialized reports are provided to generate required documentation (spreadsheets) for internal use.



College Papers

Roosevelt University Seal
Senior Thesis on Electronic Voting
Term Paper on the London Ambulance Service Computer Aided Dispatch System (LASCAD)

In college, I wrote many papers about the field of software engineering.  I am including links to some of these papers with the caveat that my business writing style is considerably more concise than my college writing style.
