About firstobject

helping C++ developers optimize text and data

My name is Ben Bryant. I started First Objective Software, Inc. here in Virginia in January 1999 with a commitment to software that does not compromise performance or usability. The key is good design and paying attention to customers.

I've been programming since I was a kid in 1980, I graduated with honors in Computer Science from the University of Toronto in 1991 and worked for CMS Information Services, Inc., a highly regarded Washington Technology "Fast50" company in Vienna Virginia for 5 years on commercial and U.S. Department of Defense projects. Since then I did a stint on the Caribbean island of Curaçao for Dutch founded IBM partner Seagull Software, and consulted in the Washington D.C. area.

firstobject.com is dedicated to the following software principles:

footprint Small Footprint  
lightning bolt High Performance
1 2 3 Easy Implementation  
sun rays Reliable

You guys are kickin'!! Excellent, professional work. This is not easy stuff and you are making it look like a cake walk. I wish I could put a team like you on the other 29 Architecture CSCs.
