Who We Are


JDH Software Technologies is, to be honest, just one person; myself.


I have been writing software for over 25 years on and off, with my getting degrees in 1988 for both electrical engineering and computer science. Until recently, I designed hardware for Apple Computer for a living and have been doing software primarily for a hobby. Previously, most of my work has been small tools written in 'C', along with some applications written in Pascal, QL Super Basic, and of course, 'C'. The larger apps included a Parts Store inventory system, an accounts payable package, plus a mail reader.


I have had several projects bouncing around in my head for some time now, with one in a constant state of flux for over four years. Thanks to a promise that I made a couple of years ago, I decided to get serious about the software side of things and what you see here is part of the result.


My current primary project is something for a fairly mature OS (Sinclair QL, SMSQ/E) and is being done for two primary reasons; 1) the small and very loyal QL user community needs it, 2) the project is a tremendous challenge for myself both architecturally and in complexity.


My future projects will be developed primarily for OS X (Apple) and may also be ported to the QL systems. I have decided to remove future support for OS/2 due to severe time constraints.
