About Professor Selitrennikoff

Glad you have taken the time to access this information. I would like to tell you a little about myself. I have been doing part-time instruction at Cypress College for 20 years. Started off as a one year thing and evolved into something more long term. I have been working in the computer industry for 30 years. However, I didn’t start off in the computer industry. My first temporary position was for 12 years with the Disney Company. I moved from there to McDonnell-Douglas for 12 years. There I worked in the Business software group for 7 years and them moved into CAD/CAM and PDM deployment for five years. Then I left that company and moved to Siemens PLM Software. Siemens PLM Software is a world leader in computer aided-design and Product Data Management software. If you drive a GM car or own an iPOD it was designed using our products. I have been with Siemens PLM Software for 15 years.

I have been a programmer, system analyst, team leader, manager, project leader and I am currently a software Release Manager (Ask me if you are interested to know what a software Release Manager does).

I have programmed in many languages but have come to love Visual Basic. A language most programmers believe are beneath them.

Some of my personal interests are: movies, movie soundtracks and playing video and internet games. I build my own computers and love to buy more stuff to make my machines run faster. I love theatre and have been involved with Musical Theatre for five years. I have been on stage and worked back stage moving props and being a stage manager. All fun stuff.
