Company Summary

Our automatic optimization programming media escalate science modeling and computerization in R&D. The higher math is automated under the hood, removing the labor of math programming. These media can renew the original growth of the computer industry, enabling DIY prototyping by STEM problem originators, far quicker than engaging programmers, while meeting the narrow-opportunity window (NOW) deadlines which limit R&D market demand.

    Steve M. Thames
    Sr. Software Engineer

    Exceptionally skilled software developer in web technologies, with a long contract programming career, including over ten years as a contractor or HP/Agilent. Worked on several pioneering software projects with Joseph Thames, including "Spiritext", the key publishing medium Steve will direct in this project. This product will become the basis for resurrecting the software maintenance startup in which we developed this advance web technology.

    Phil Brubaker
    Sr. Application Engineer

    Phil is the most dedicated of several MetaCalculus evangelists, and is the longest running continuous user of the technology in three of its generations. He and another evangelist, Frank Pfeiffer worked together at more than one company, and were instrumental of those companies being purchasers of PROSE site licenses. Phil has uncovered the immense potential of deep optimization nesting (DON), which he has pursued with FortranCalculus.
