My New Books

It's been a busy time lately; I've published three books in less than a year. The images below link to the books on Amazon:

Valley Programming provides business analyst and computer programming consulting services for the Boulder, Colorado area, including Boulder, Louisville, Lafayette, Broomfield, and Westminster, Colorado.

Valley Programming currently consists of one person, Alvin Alexander, but I think I have a good track record. Among other things, I have:

  • A degree in Aerospace Engineering, and have worked on NASA and DoD projects.
  • Created websites like devdaily.com, which gets millions of page views every year.
  • Led multi-million dollar software projects.
  • Founded and then sold a fifteen-person, multi-million dollar software development and web hosting company in Louisville, Kentucky.

Update: I postponed the opening of Valley Programming to write the Scala Cookbook, but I'll be providing software consulting services beginning in March, 2013.

Mission #1

The first mission of Valley Programming is very simple: Work with my customers to solve business problems. If you think a new website or software app can help you make money, save money, or even launch a new business, contact me for a free consultation.

Mission #2

The second mission of Valley Programming is also clear: Provide affordable computer programming training to Colorado students. I've been told that I'm a good teacher/mentor, and I certainly enjoy it, so I'm hoping to continue providing computer training and mentoring services here in Colorado.

Contact

Ready to meet to discuss a software development project you've been thinking about? Fear not, initial consultations are free, and I'm glad to share whatever information I can about potential project costs, time frames, and what I'd need from you to get the project done.

Just use the phone number shown at the bottom of this page or my contact form  to set up a free initial meeting. If I can help you, I'll let you know, and if for some reason I can't, I'll let you know that, too.

My Latest Invention

As of late January, 2012, my latest invention is a software application named SARAH (after the smart house of the same name in the tv show Eureka). SARAH is a "voice interaction" application, using both speech recognition and text-to-speech technology. By using a plugin architecture, it can grow into an application that can let you control everything in your home. Here's a video of SARAH in action:
