    Windows Desktop Applications, Reporting and Automation

    United States - Last active: 09/23/2014 - Tests: 1 - Portfolio: 1

    My experience includes completed business process automation projects, result reporting and tools projects on the Windows platform. I gained this experience during my 11 year tenure as an employee at Microsoft. As a "jack of all trades, master of none", I'm flexible with the projects that I take on. My approach to delivering on software projects is to take a bit more time up-front to do a good enough job rather than cutting corners in a hurry to finish the project. The more-time-up-front approach saves money long term by reducing maintenance costs dealing with excessive regressions and brittle hard-to-read code. This approach also reduces costs when adding features. -Languages C#, C/C++, Perl, HTML (some v5), XML, JavaScript, JSON, T-SQL -Frameworks/API's/Object Models .Net Framework, ADO.NET, ASP.NET Forms/MVC SQL Server Management Objects MS Excel and Outlook w/C# COM Interop Multi-threading (using both C# & C) Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) GDAL Google Maps Android Win32 C#/PInvoke Windows installation kits and SDK's MapPoint -Software SQL Server 2005-2014 Windows Server 2003 - 2012 R2 MySQL PostGIS TeamFoundation Server (all versions) Visual Studio 2013 Hyper-V, VMware (Workstation and ESXI 5.x), Fusion, VirtualBox MS Office -Devices GPS, Bluetooth, USB, Serial, OBD2, Arduino -Data US Census OpenStreetMap SRTM (Shuttle Radar Topography Mission)
