I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Software Engineering from the Rochester Institute of Technology in May 2011. I currently work for UTC Aerospace Systems in Massachusetts. My full CV is available on StackOverflow Careers and LinkedIn.

My professional interests include software project management, software engineering process, software measurements and metrics, leadership, and professionalism in software engineering. I'm also a casual student of psychology and sociology, especially as they apply to a business context. Personally, I have taken up photography as a hobby. I'm also a casual gamer.

comment Are there any Android apps similar to RunKeeper, but for things other than running or cardio workouts?
I'll poke around these when I get home. I've heard of Fitocracy as well, but can't find an invite code.

@Ivo No, but I don't see how that matters for things that aren't cardio. That's what I'm already doing for RunKeeper - after a treadmill/elliptical run, I enter the time, distance, and other data provided by the machine. Now, I'm looking to have an app where I enter wight + sets/reps + exercise type to track progress, such as lifting more weight, or tracking variations in sets/reps performed.

comment What kind of exercises can I do at home with no equipment?
I would prefer a routine to something like FitDeck. I like consistency and repeatability in my exercises. I'd like a simple routine that I can do in my apartment with no equipment that focuses on non-cardio activities. Tabata looks like it involves a lot of cardio or needs equipment like a bag. I want more than just pushups and situps that can complement my 3-4 days/week running.

@Ivo I'm looking for not cardio exercises (as well). That is a good starting point, though.

Is this appropriate for a beginner? It seems awfully...intense. It says in the description that it's appropriate for all fitness levels, but I'm a little hesitant. Also, is there anything online that I can start to follow here and now, if I do decide to order this book?
