What I Do

Starstone Software Systems, Inc. is the S-Corp identity for Richard S. Wright Jr., contractor and astrophotographer at large. I make and write stuff…

Write Code

I’m a contract software developer. I do primarily C/C++, but do a lot of dabbling in other languages as well. My current development stack is primarily Qt 5.x, and I develop for Windows, macOS, iOS, Android, and Linux. I wrote some books on OpenGL and taught game programming at night at Full Sail University for 15 years. If you’re a former student… you found me 😉

(Full time – primary priority) Sr. Product Developer and Software Engineer, Software Bisque
