Benish Industries Homepage
Benish Industries is owned and operated by me, Don Benish. I am an electrical engineer, writer, and computer programmer.
BackgroundI graduated from Wichita State University in 1982 with a BSEE. I then went to work for Hughes Aircraft Company-Missiile Systems Group in California. I was the head of the Power Test Group of the Power Systems Department, and I was also the lead battery design engineer for all new missile programs. In 1989 I left Hughes to take care of some personal business and do some writing. In 1995 I went to work for MCI-Power Systems Department. I was in charge of monitoring all power alarms throughout the MCI system and evaluating and passing on all requests to perform work on power equipment.
In September 1996 I left MCI to do work on some programming tasks I wanted to accomplish. I bought a book on PERL programming, and read it in about seven days. My friend, Joe, who designs web pages needed a programmer to create a CGI script for a lease payment estimator on a page he was creating. I wrote that script for him and you can view the result at www.ilfs.com/ilfs_lpe.htm.
We have won numerous awards and recognitions and have been featured in Yahoo Internet Life, The Internet Atlas, and Parade Magazine, among many others.
After I had created several prototype scripts for the megaconverter, I set out to create the web's first really functional scientific calculator that I call megaCalculator.
I later took a contract job for Sprint converting Sprintmail scripts to HTML. I then worked for Agency.com as a Lead Technical Consultant. I have worked on websites for British Airways, Sharp, Compaq, Armstrong Tile, Motorola, 3M, Coco-Cola and Sprint.
