DELTA Ministries International
  • I was a volunteer consultant for this project. Created a newsletter website ( for Delta Ministries International, a non-profit organization
  • Delta wanted to be able to create and distribute e-newsletters in a simple way
  • The objective was that they should be able to create newsletters without knowing any HTML or any code
  • I created a complete admin portion for them where they could create a newsletter and type or copy/paste articles with pictures
  • Each article is one entry and a group of articles makes one newsletter
  • They can also create user lists and newsletter groups
  • Once a newsletter has to be sent out, all that they have to do is select the recipients as groups and/or individuals and click a button
  • As per their request, the e-newsletter is a condensed version of the online version with "Read More" links
  • The newsletter goes out in a MIME- encoded format so that the recepients can read the newsletter offline with all graphics intact
  • The website is up and running and so far has sent out newsletters to thousands of recipients
  • When a user clicks the "Read More", he gets into the site directly to the newsletter he wants to read
  • This process also creates a "Click-back" trigger that shows how many people actually read the newsletter as a result of the email and not by directly coming to the site
  • All online newsletters are created dynamically and the whole process is very fast. Admin users also get statistics and flash pie-graphs.Also helped set-up a complete DotNetNuke (DNN) site with multiple modules at

  • COM+ has been used on this test platform with the intention of migrating the project to Win2K.

  • A separate revenue table is created in the billing process which is used for reports
  • History tables are also generated for client side lookup of individual accounts
  • The same application has now been developed using Oracle 8.0/7.3 database with VB
  • The Oracle Objects for OLE are being used instead of JET engine/ODBC. Stored procedures are being used for common processes
  • A dynamic script is run by SQLLoader from within VB to convert the text files from the legacy system to Oracle tables
  • The process and error logging is done through SQLLoader as files which are mailed to the administrator on a daily basis
  • Unlike Access 2.0 here the calculated data is kept in the database and so the front-end has been simplified to look up the data and not recalculate and so it is much faster
  • The billing procedure is done every night automatically by using the NT task scheduler.

Software as a Service



"This course, which begins on Monday, is an opinionated path through the bewildering array of methodologies, languages, tools, and artifact types that collectively make up software engineering. The goal is to instill good software habits: “testability, software architecture, modularity, and reusability” while providing the gratification of building a working deployed artifact in the cloud in just 6 weeks. We teach Agile Development in the context of building and deploying a Software-as-a-Service application implemented using Ruby on Rails."
