To become a utilized resource among talented, creative individuals.

Ways I Can Contribute

I am experienced with the entire software development life cycle and can contribute to projects in many ways:

  • Brainstorming and wireframing
  • Creating entity relationship diagrams, converting these ERDs to ddl and dml scripts
  • Generating domain classes and utilizing them within ORM frameworks
  • Creation of controllers to manage those classes and other business logic (and the views to render the truth the controller posits)
  • JQuery interface elements capable of manipulating data via ajax.
  • Ensuring quality through Test-Driven-Design (if allowed) and automated testing with xUnit or Selenium RC for front-end.
  • Experience launching a successful public facing app on time and within budget (including creating and managing a team to help with the effort)
  • Agile tools and methodologies are used to make sure each build contains solutions the customers need.
