Software Development/Software Release
My 25 years of experience in IT, predominantly in the area of software development and database management, has provided me with a multi-faceted experience leading small groups with legacy systems, as well as completely new start-ups.
My areas of greatest experience are in UNIX/Linux environments with strong scripting, SQL and C-language skills. I also have object-oriented programming experience with C++ with lesser experience with J2EE and Microsoft languages such as VB and C#. I shifted my IT experience to a Microsoft Windows environment in 2005 in order to gain a better exposure to that part of IT. In that MS position I performed as technical manager supervising six developers in an ASP.NET (VB & C#) environment.
I found my more valuable contributions were with managing developers, shepherding the release/deployment process and establishing an operations group to maintain a turn-key application system for which I lead the development. I managed source control, application builds, and releases to the various test environments. I have also performed release responsibilities on the operations side with Sarbanes-Oxley and SAS-70 compliance. My experience in database development for a start-up on-line credit reporting system was synergistically enhanced by my experience in software development where data flow development dominated software design.
My most valuable assets were collaboration among developers, business analysts, quality assurance, computer operations, change control board members, compliance auditors, and ultimately the end users to deploy software and data to production.
