Work History

Work History

Architect/Systems Developer

Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP)

Systems Developer (August 2005 to October 2005):  Stephen provided development support for the J2EE system for the Bureau of Emergency Response, which is used to track incidents and responses throughout the State of Florida.  The existing system was a DOS based Dbase application, so a complete redesign was in order.  The new web based system contains workflow and decisioning which will aid in processing 40% of the incidents the districts enter without HQ user interaction.  This will allow the HQ evaluators to focus on the cost recovery efforts, rather than needing to spend time on data entry.

Architect/Systems Developer (August 2005 to October 2005):  Stephen designed, developed, and implemented the Emergency Event Reporting system for Administrative Services.  This web-based system was developed in .NET using a Visual Fox Pro database.  The system automated DEP daily employee task for tracking employee locations and duties during hurricane season.  It was designed with the ability for the users to manage and update the system without the need for a programmer.  Stephen provided, designed, and executed the initial training class for the users, which provided a smooth transition to the new system.

Developer/Consultant (May 2005 to July 2005):  Stephen designed and developed a custom web-based security and management application for Administrative Services.  The application supported the migrating servers and operating system upgrades; would track, save, export folder data sizes and user security rights for each server based on users’ request.
