About me -------- ![Michael Galloy][avatar] I'm a software developer focusing on high-performance computing and visualization in scientific programming. I work mostly in IDL, but occasionally use C, CUDA, Python, bash scripting, etc. I am currently a Research Mathematician at [Tech-X Corporation][txcorp]. My projects involve maintaining several commercial products (all IDL libraries): 1. [GPULib][gpulib] (GPU accelerated IDL code), 2. FastDL (mpiDL and TaskDL, parallel processing from within IDL), and 3. the Remote Data Toolkit (easy to use OPeNDAP and netCDF bindings). I also maintain and develop several open source projects in IDL. The most used are: 1. [IDLdoc] (a utility for generating documentation from IDL source code), 2. [mgunit] (a unit testing framework for IDL), and 3. [rIDL] (a enhanced command line interface to IDL). Last year I wrote a book, [Modern IDL][modernidl]. It covers beginning through advanced topics in using IDL, including direct graphics, object-oriented programming, object graphics, and other techniques to get the most out of IDL. See the [website][modernidl] for purchasing, sample chapter, code examples, and more. For more details about me, see my [CV][cv] and [resume]. Contact -------
