My name is Troy Williams and I am a professional mining engineer and programmer writing software for the mining industry. The software is primarily for 3D CAD systems that are focused on the mining and mineral industry, particularly underground drilling and blasting operations.

Primarily the software is developed for the Windows platforms using Visual Studio 2005/2010 (targeting v2.0 and v4.0 of the .Net framework). I am dabbling in python and am a full time Ubuntu Linux user on all of my personal computers.
