ABOUTHello, my name is Jeff "JavaJeff" Friesen. I teach Java technology (including Android) to everyone via articles, blogs, books, and software. This website provides access to some of these Java resources.
EducationIn the 1980s, I learned Fortran at high school, and subsequently attended Brandon University where I pursued a Bachelor of Science degree with majors in computer science and mathematics. I took computer science classes in Pascal, Cobol, APL, VAX assembler language, algorithms and data structures, computer graphics, digital image processing, networks, databases, operating systems programming, compiler construction, and numerical analysis. Also, I took mathematics classes in calculus, analysis, linear algebra, statistics, and set theory and algebra. I graduated in 1987 and received the diploma shown below:
Work HistoryAfter graduation, I worked for a telecommunications company (where I developed software to automate computer tasks and track employee absences), an investment firm (where I developed client portfolio management software), and two software development companies. While working for these companies, I taught myself C/C++, Visual Basic, Windows architecture/APIs, and HTML.
