Hello! I’m Paul Varcholik.

I’m just your average geek, with many many hobbies. I built this site to share some information about a few of them.

I’m a software engineer for Electronic Arts – Tiburon. I work in the Tools department with a group of some of the brightest engineers I’ve ever had the privelage to work with. We’re developing some amazing technologies and I can’t wait until the gaming world gets their hands on next generation hardware like the Xbox 360 and PS3. I also teach classes at Seminole Community College. I’ve been at SCC since 2003 and taught at Valdosta Technical College for several semesters before moving to Florida. I absolutely love teaching — probably as much as I love coding. Since joining SCC I’ve taught .NET languages exculsively. Specifically, I’ve taught C# and Advanced C# classes and we’re trying to rollout a C# – Advanced Topics class for the Fall 2005 semester.

Most of the initial posts here are going to be about a robotics project I’ve been consumed by recently. If you have any comments you’d like to send to me directly, I can be reached at

Thanks for reading.

    Thanks for your web site and sharing experience on .NET and robotics.
    Question on dev environment.
    I do not own .NET. I see that MS is giving away .NET express. Looks functional but stripped down .NET version.
    Will this work to use as a robotic dev environment to start?

    Will this version work with what you have have developed thus far? (Meaning can I compile your work for the Brainstem with this Express version?)

    Hi Christian,

    Yes, the BrainStem.NET library runs just fine under C# 2005 Express. I verified this after reading your comment and didn’t run into any snags. If you encounter any problems, just give me a shout.

    Happy coding.
