Joe Bruen
  • Associate Professor of Computer Science

Joe has 35 years of industry experience. He held a variety of senior technical and managerial positions.

Concerning OO technologies:

  • 1981 Worked on a modeling tool for computer hardware using the OO language Simula.
  • Mid-1980s developed a C++ OO database.
  • 1996 onward primarily focused on Java and Open Source technologies.
  • 2001 Obtained Sun Certification as a Java Architect.
  • Subsequently held positions in both Sprint and Wells Fargo as a Senior Architect.

Of further note, the company that Joe worked at in the late 1970s and early 1980s had developed, in concert with Carnegie-Mellon University, a programming language called BLISS. So, it is fair to say that Joe spent a number of years programming in BLISS.
