Kevin Hollingshead

Research Software Engineer
University Staff

I am a long-term software professional with extensive experience in
all aspects of software development.  I began my career
programming flight computers to control commercial aircraft along a
predetermined flight plan, and this software is still in service to
this day. 

During the bulk of my career I managed a small
consulting firm serving major clients including several Fortune 500
companies, among them United Health Group, Chevron, BP Amoco, and
Fifth Third Bancorp.  Our specialty was high volume transaction
processing and point of sale systems.  Our flagship products
processed well over 3 million transactions per day.  In addition
to the large scale products we also provided embedded system programs
for point of sale terminals and other devices.  As a hands-on
manager I led, and participated in, all phases of product development
including requirements gathering, analysis, design, coding, QA
testing, implementation and support.

Following the sale of the consulting firm
I’ve set my course toward specialized mobile app development,
with emphasis on remote communications over Bluetooth (and Bluetooth
LE) and remote device control, and am currently affiliated with
Arizona State University as a Research Software Engineer.
