About Me

My name is Mike Wallace, and I am a software developer with 22 years of professional experience writing commercial applications. I started programming in the 10th grade and eventually earned a B.S. in Computer Science from Virginia Tech. For the last 16 years, most of my development has been done in C++ and Java, with a focus on Java for the last 13 years.

I was a co-author on the book "Windows Undocumented File Formats." This book covers the file formats of Windows not documented by Microsoft, and was published in the Fall of 1997 by R&D Books. I was also the technical editor for four other books published by R&D: "Print Programming Under Windows" (Fall, 1999), "Industrial Strength Windows Programming" (Winter, 2000), "COM Programming by Example" (Summer, 2000) and "Win32 Programming Under the API" (Winter, 2001).
