For over 10 years, I have been developing Web sites and Web applications of all shapes and sizes. More recently, I have started developing native iOS apps as well. During this time I have worked both independently and on small teams of developers. I have worked equally in both Front End and Back End technologies and am proficient in both aspects of Web Development.
In addition to my technical experience and knowledge, I pride myself on being an excellent communicator in both written and verbal formats. I believe this ability to work well with others, and to convey my ideas and concerns in a clear way, combined with my technical knowledge, makes me an excellent developer.
I am eternally interested in learning new techniques and technologies, and staying on top of the ever-changing technologies I already know. Creating compelling, useful software that gets people excited is what drives me.
For v1 of Peggsite, I was the primary developer for both front end and back end code on PeggSite. On the back end, we use MySQL and PHP. On the front end, we use Backbone.js and Require.js. The idea, and all of the design is done by my co-founder, Kirk Love. The code is all pretty much all mine (Kirk is helping with some HTML/CSS). I designed the database, API, the entire front end, and managed all of the back end AWS infrastructure. This is a very front end heavy application.
For v2, we decided to concentrate all of our efforts on the iPhone app. We scaled the presence of the web site back significantly, and doubled down on mobile. This entailed me quickly getting up to speed with Objective-C, and then spending the bulk of my days in XCode. During this process I learned a ton about all aspects of native iPhone development.
DRC provides a range of technical services to the Department of Defense and several other Government branches. My role with DRC entails being a lead software architect for several different web based applications. Most of these applications revolve around training and E-Learning. I built several web application tools and products while working at DRC. Many of these web applications were internal tools to improve efficiencies in our team. Other example of things I helped build are: several web-based training (WBT) for State Government; a Leaning Management System (LMS) for California Department of Corrections.
Designed, deployed, and maintained an in depth web application tool that allows our company with only two programmers to produce dozens of online interactive courses per year. Also used native DHTML/ASP technologies to create a client review system that allows us to streamline the client/developer interactions during courseware development. In 2001 we produced 120 WBTs for clients such as Adobe, CNA Insurance, American Express, Chevron, and Anheuser-Busch.
