My speciality is Microsoft SQL Database Developer, but my real strength and value is the breadth of my experience. Whether you want a short-term contractor to get your shop into shape, or a long-term staff member to keep it that way, I will figure out how to do what you need done. I am equally comfortable as a lone operative, team leader, or team member.
Microsoft SQL Server 2014, Oracle 11g, MySQL 5, Windows Server 2012R2 (IIS 8.5), VMWare 5.5
Antelope, CA — In coordination with ComputerStuff4You (an IT services company), I handled a wide variety of integration and conversion projects.
Sacramento, CA — CPR's CapRadio.org is a regional non-profit high-traffic content-rich public website, with audio streaming, podcasts, and RSS. They typically hired entry-level webmasters, who didn't stay very long, so they frequently needed general mentoring, support during transitions, and help with high-priority projects.
Citrus Heights, CA — RR serves small lenders such as Credit Unions, managing the process of finding, recovering, and selling the vehicles of borrowers in default. I managed their database, website, and intranet until they were acquired by Primeritus Financial Services.
Emeryville, CA — Became familiar with the organization of the system tables on all databases (Sybase, Oracle, Microsoft SQL 4.2 and 6, and Informix). Wrote tools in TCL, portable between UNIX and NT. Created UNIX Shell, sed and perl scripts to automate capturing development databases, generating change reports from ClearCase source control, and extracting important error information from installation log files.
Walnut Creek, CA — Developed tools to parse and document C programs, using a TCL-like scripting language, C code, Shell and sed scripts, and batch files (portable between UNIX and DOS). Identified and solved weather data reception problems in Real-Time UNIX on Navy ships, increasing the error-free data rate eight-fold.
New York, NY — Created and maintained programs in C and Assembler (portable between DOS PCs and PDP mini-computers), to recover documents from obsolete computer systems, keeping visual formatting intact.
