How can I help you?

Service
Description
Initial Consultation

Start your project with a free, informal no-obligation consultation. Tell me about your project scope, schedules, requirements, resourcing, capabilities needed, etc. Let's get to know each other. Big projects are not a problem — I have a large network of reliable, cross-disciplinary subcontractors that I've managed in past engagements and wouldn't hesitate to use again.

Project Management

Together, we can establish a base-line project definition or scope of work for a larger project. Output of this phase is a detailed proposal, which can be used as the basis of a fixed-price contract, for competitive bidding, or as a definition of scope and milestones for the project. I will keep you up-to-date on the progress of the project, and seamlessly coordinate subcontractors (if required).

Software Development

I provide short to long term software development activities, anywhere along the product lifecycle spectrum: documentation, requirements gathering / analysis, architecture, coding, code review, bug fixes, testing, field deployment, upgrades, training, marketing collateral, and so on.

Design Security Audit

Let me take a look at your current design for weakness and areas of vulnerability. Attack trees, penetration testing, and detailed quality assurance reports generated.

Reverse Engineering

I am an expert in reverse engineering software on many devices, specializing in ARM and x86 platforms. Reverse engineering is specifically used in support of patent litigation in order to ascertain if a product infringes on intellectual property rights. Claims analysis and claims mapping can be provided, as well as patent portfolio analysis.

Note: rates are negotiable depending upon project scope; quotes valid for 30 days; Canadian tax (HST) extra for services billed to Canadian companies. Expenses and subcontractors billed at actual cost + 10%. Terms net 30 + 2% per month overdue.
