Hi, I am a programmer with over 15 years experience in the IT industry. I have successfully migrated many legacy Delphi/VB6 applications over to VB.NET as well as C#. Also in my career I have developed many extensive multi-user, multi-site software systems from the ground up covering areas such as dispatching, document management, sales & executive dashboards and ERP. I look forward to helping you with your own automation and business needs.
In the last 5 years, I have developed a wide range of integration solutions between ERP several and online shop like Magento and Virtuemart using an Opensource ETL platform called Pentaho Data Integration. My skill includes full experience in DB development on MySql, Oracle and MS Sql Server, PHP development and Windows and Linux.
You can't really place me in a single box. I'm a PHP webdeveloper (although I can manage ASP/VB.Net as well) with profound knowledge and experience with system administation of both Windows and Linux servers and know my way around IP networks. Putting it all together has proven to be a very good match and enables me to deliver solutions that are optimzed across the board.
Combining a deep knowledge of finance and technology, my ability to see the big picture as well as understand the nuances of technical implementations places me in a unique and excellent position to consult, advise, troubleshoot and problem solve complex systems rapidly. Specialties: • Operating Systems Linux: CentOS, Debian, RHEL, Ubuntu; Mac OS X • RDBMS: MySQL 5.0 (Certified), PostgreSQL • Languages: Bash, Java, Perl, PHP, Python • Financial Platforms: Proprietary HFT platforms. FIX, Interactive Data, Magic, RTS, Speedway/Photon, SRTech, Wombat • Other: KVM, Xen Hypervisor, VirtualBox, Apache, various SMTP servers, SSL+IPSec VPNs, Load balancing, High-Availability
I am a creative, effective and highly adaptive software engineer with a 37 year track record of innovation. I've designed, developed, maintained, and supported software and databases using a wide variety of technologies including: SQL Databases: DB2, MS SQL Server, MySQL, SQLite, Paradox, DBase, MS Access. Other databases including SAS, IMS DB, IDMS, VSAM. Database design using Normalization and Entity/Relationship Diagrams. Programming Languages: Delphi, C/C++, Pascal, Perl, REXX, SAS, SAS Macros, PL/1, Fortran, BASIC, various macro languages, CLISTs, CMS Execs, and light experience with Visual Basic. Application frameworks including VCL, DevExpress VCL components, FireMonkey, CXL, CICS, IMS DC, ISPF Dialog Manager, and ADF. I've also done some light work with Embarcadero's HTML5 Builder. Various data reporting and query engines including Business Objects, Crystal Reports, QMF, and embedding SQL queries in Excel. Systems Analysis using Object Oriented Analysis and Design (Coad/Yourdon) and extensive experience with various Structured Development LifeCycle Methodologies (SDLCs included Yourdon/DeMarco/Page-Jones, Warnier/Orr, Jackson). I've done light study and experimentation with Theory of Constraints process modeling (TOC). Targeted product platforms included Windows, MS DOS, zOS / MVS, TSO, VM/CMS, DOS/VS, and light work for Unix, Macintosh, Android, and iOS. I've designed, developed, and maintained websites using Joomla, FrontPage, NetObjects Fusion, and other tools. I also worked briefly with Wordpress blogs. I've done consulting, data collection, and reporting for software metrics and software product/project sizing (using Function Points and Lines of Code using Boehm's COCOMO model). My products have had high impact e.g. I developed a software performance database and GUI graphing "Prospector" toolkit that saved one company $6-8 million dollars per year, for 6+ consecutive years, by enabling them to rapidly prioritize high impact software re-engineering and problem diagnosis. During one my Prospector demos, one audience member said "you've just done in 1-2 minutes what takes me 8-10 hours every day". During one Y2K conversion project, I designed and created automation to diagnose and remediate database impact. It eliminated more than a thousand hours of labor from the project. Another system I refactored had about 1,000 modules ALL needing modifications EVERY year. I redesigned it into about 100 comparable reusable/sharable modules, with only about 10 needing modifications per year. Doing so dramatically reduced support labor. Shortly after I joined Sabre Holdings in 1982, they became one of the first American companies to use IBMs DB2, I was one of the first Sabre technologists to pioneer using DB2, as both Database Administrator (DBADM) and application developer.
I am a Senior at SPSU for Computer Science. I have worked for years as an improvement engineer and business analyst in the auto manufacturing industry. I have created several database applications and hundreds of Excel sheets. I am extremely proficient in VBA programming to coordinate MS applications in an office environment. I also have experience in JAVA, C++, and SQL. My most resent interests have been in developing Google forms and sheets that implement Google Scripting language similar to Java Script.
My core strengths are understanding what you need, then developing a user-friendly front-end user interface with a robust database running in the back-end. I am highly skilled in Access and Excel, and program in VBA and SQL. I am looking for some smaller projects to build my portfolio. I have a BS in Business Administration from UNC-Greensboro and have taken several computer programming classes giving me a strong background. I have developed multiple Access user interfaces with SQL running the background. I have setup ODBC connections to AS/400 systems. I currently provide DBA functions for off-site users in the U.S., Asia, and Europe, including managing user access.
