Introduce yourself – who you are, what you do, and where you are.
My name is Ernest Eugene Mallett. I am a Sr. Software Developer working at Pivot Technology Solutions. Formerly I have been a C# development instructor, Lead Developer, Team Lead, and other positions with other companies. I have been programming since I was 8 years old, starting with Basic and working my way up. My first love was PHP, developing websites and data collection interfaces.
I learned C# and .NET through video game development working with the Unity Game Engine. I have also taken the Computer Programming Aptitute Battery (CPAB) with a score of 95, and I have obtained many certifications in regards to cloud environments and software development. In 2007 I scored 3rd in the Alabama state Cyber Security Competition.
In 2008 I joined the United States Marine Corps and was an Electronic-Intelligence Intercept Analyst/Operator. Shortly after arriving at my first duty-station I was retrained as a Communications Signals Collection Operator/Analyst. During my time I was the systems administrator for my units Technical Control and Analysis Center, and I was commended on my abilities to gather information and through proper analysis convert it to actionable intelligence.
