Welcome to Smartware Design, a small business to help your business
Smartware Design - Michael Barton

Michael Barton

Smartware Design was created as a means to develop games, mobile apps, Java applications, and websites for myself and other small businesses in hopes of one day partnering with a major application developer to create constant innovations.  With more than 13 years of software development experience and a Bachelors of Science in Computer Engineering from Georgia Tech, I continue to learn and keep up with the bleeding edge of technology to stay informed on where the market is heading.

As for my start, my father owned and operated six laundromats in Augusta, GA, in which I helped out during the summer filling the soda and snack machines, working on the equipment when necessary, and doing what I could with my dad’s family-run business.  However, in my junior year of high school I took on a passion for computer science by taking my first programming course in C++ and ever since that year I have been a passionate software engineering entrepreneur.

I have experience working for the Department of Defense (GSAT, BaS&E, CAS), primarily the US Air Force, telecommunications at Cox Communications, credit transactions through telecom channels at Equifax as a Professional Services Consultant Lead, E-Commerce development at Automation Direct, emergency response apps at Global Emergency Resources, and native mobile app development at Progressive Insurance.  After experiencing a plethora of various technologies and systems, I can strategically plan projects and develop with a wide range of tools and technologies.

As Smartware Design, we have thus far created more than 7 total iOS apps, 8 Android Apps, and 3 BlackBerry apps, in addition to over 15 customer websites.  We have accounts on all of the above mentioned app stores for public deployment and hosting accounts for your website(s).  Please contact us today to setup a consultation for your project idea.  We would love to assist you through the process from design to production.

Thank you for your interest and support of our company!
