My experience in the computer tech industry has been wide and deep. I have worked my way up from basic hardware technician, through software quality assurance and automation engineering, and landed in software development. Along the way I have worked in both large and small companies and teams, and had the opportunity to lead by example and manage small teams.
My primary technical coding skills include .NET (C# / VB), Java, VB6, SQL, and Perl as well as authoring XML and HTML, all of which I am fluent in. I have a very customer-aware perspective, with a focus on object oriented approach, maintainable and reusable components, and solving for the present but designing for the future, all enhanced by my background in quality assurance testing and years of software end user support.
Specialties: OOP, OOD, VB, C#, .NET, Java, J2EE, JSP, ASP, HTML, DHTML, SQL, Perl, Windows Networking, Windows Servers
