My name is Luis Mendoza and I developed reverse\solidus to be a platform to showcase current projects and services. I was born in Tempe, AZ and have lived in Arizona ever since, where I’m currently a licensed realtor and have been practicing for a few years. I’m happily married with three beautiful kids and spend a lot of my free time with them. When I’m not spending time with my family or writing computer programs I enjoy staying physically active and CAD drafting mechanical pieces to process on my FDM and MSLA 3d printers. I have recently decided to continue my education and pursue my passion in Computer Science and Software Engineering. Over the years I have seen the value of software and web services grow drastically and have realized the benefits they have to offer. I would like to help make some of these services and tools more easily accessible to those that need them.
Continuing my education I have learned Software Development procedures and Object Oriented Programming concepts. Procedures and concepts such as, big O notation, methods, classes, inheritance, polymorphism, encapsulation, constructors, setters & getters, private, protected, overloading & overriding, FIFO, LIFO, binary trees & traversals, ADT's, searches & sorts, exceptions, interfaces, and UML Diagrams. Building upon my Computer Science knowledge I have also learned about computer architecture and logic circuits. I have covered subjects such as Mealy Machines, VM's, logic gates (AND, OR, XOR, NOT, NAND, NOR and XNOR), conversion methods, binary & complement arithmetic, boolean switching algebra and circuit minimization techniques. I have also covered concepts such as, the analysis and design of combinational logic, flip-flops, simple counters, registers, ROMs, PLDs, synchronous & asynchronous sequential circuits, and state reduction techniques. As I begin to create and design these systems I have learned to utilize software such as Matlab, Logisim, Fusion360, Visual Studio Code and Eclipse IDE to create these different Computer Science and Engineering related projects.
