I am a Senior .NET web developer with a wide range of technical skills primarily in web-based and Microsoft technologies. I am a highly self-motivated individual with enthusiasm to match. Over the past 8 years as a consultant I have been placed in many roles within very different environments, projects, technologies and teams and believe these experiences have shaped the technical and team-driven personality I have today. I feel that my enthusiastic attitude, diligence and desire to learn has helped me to keep up to date in the ever-evolving web development world, and with a strong foundation in core technical skills I have the ability to adapt and learn quickly when put outside of my comfort zone. I massively favour agile as a development process over waterfall, although not without its pitfalls, but I believe having a good team and strong scrum master can overcome many of these obstacles. Most of the roles I have undertaken have come with their own set of challenges, both technical and non-technical, which I believe has given me valuable insight and experience in dealing with many difficulties that can arise during the development lifecycle. As well as my technical skills I’m a bubbly character and work well in a team environment.
Ideally in my next role I am looking for something relatively greenfield using current web technologies (angularJS/MVC5/WebAPI/.NET 4.5) within a friendly but hard-working agile team.
One project I was hired for was to develop a Facebook application for Microsoft to promote Windows Live Search. It was developed using the .NET Facebook Toolkit (with some FBML), ASP.NET 2.0, SQL Server 2005, T-SQL and the Live Search API. The point of the game was to present a set of celebrity pictures (retrieved from live search) and the user has to guess the search term that matches those pictures. Points are allocated depending on when/if the user gets the correct answer.
Another requirement was to create a new search page and celebrity index for Heat Magazine (www.heatworld.com). Technologies used were C# .NET 2.0, ASP.NET 2.0 and SQL Server 2005. The search page is essentially a mash-up, using Windows Live Search for retrieving content (images, video, news, web results) as well as data from their own database such as top stories and celebrity biographies. It was also necessary to provide the ability to configure these pages through their existing CMS.
One of these projects was the conversion of a VB6 application to a thin client solution using C# and ASP.NET 2.0. This solution, for Capital Gains Tax purposes, consisted of a data entry front-end with an XML Web Service which accepted asynchronous requests for report generation. This application utilised ASP.NET 2.0’s Provider Model through the implementation of custom Oracle providers for Membership & Role management, as well as a custom Profile Provider for persisting user settings in an Oracle 9i database.
Another ASP.NET application, on which I was the sole developer, was a Timesheet Entry/Reporting application using Microsoft Access 2003. This application was role based, implementing custom Membership & Role providers for MS Access. Primarily this was a data-entry/reporting system, but also included email notification using Domino’s COM component, to encourage prompt submission of timesheets. Another highlight of this application was a work from home request/approval feature.
I also worked on a number of Windows forms applications at this site. From June 1999 to April 2007 (7 years 11 months) Developer @ Visual Basic / Classic ASP Developer. From November 1998 to June 1999 (8 months) Developer / Desktop Support @ I started here working on their internal I.T. HelpDesk / Desktop Support and moved into Visual Basic Development. From July 1996 to November 1998 (2 years 5 months)
