Consultant

Svea Ekonomi

Employed by Academic Work as a consultant in a web development project for Svea Ekonomi.

Using MVC3 in Microsoft Visual Studios, the web development project was set up in three different parts. A database storing information, back-end programmed in F# and front-end programmed in C#. The results of the product, which replaced a similar previous application, is now in use internally for Svea employees.

As the project was exeuted using "Kanban" for software development, the developers involved had no specific roles. One simply chose a task that needed to be done. In my case, I decided to be active within all areas of the project in order to gain as much practical experience as possible.
