Aaron Lord Agency Contractor
Senior software developer with 19 years experience with graphic design and page layout and 15 years experience in web development—half self-employed, and half in the corporate world. I am an experience designer of service-oriented architectures. I am a proponent of best practices and design patterns and have a gift for refactoring and optimization. 15 years experience in web application development with ASP.NET (and its predecessor, ASP Classic), relational database design and integration, CMS/admin pages development, and web graphics production; 10 years experience with the .NET Framework, programming Windows services, web services, and APIs. Skilled with software versioning and source control strategies. I'm always looking for better ways to do things, to improve performance or conform to standards or best practices. I strongly believe in “maintaining the upgrade chain” and innovating with agile, incremental improvements rather than letting a product stagnate. As a “Boy Scout Coder”, I typically check in my code cleaner than it was when I checked it out.
