Welcome to James Kent Software. Many decades ago I started my career as an application programer, working with COBOL, C/C++, Visual Basic and many others. These days, I work in IT Management and hadn't coded in years. Following a dare, I decided to teach myself the Swift programming language using Apple's XCode with the goal of getting an iPhone app published on the Apple App Store. Took a while to learn the basics of coding again, and while there was a lot to learn, there was also many concepts that are the same. Hope you enjoy the apps!
