Software Development Coach
For every 15 minutes
Generalist Software Developer and Software Development Coach. I think testing is very important; a tight development process is key; and that reviewing your requirements regularly for completeness, consistency and accuracy will minimize the cost of "surprises". I like to know the big picture, am detail oriented and love the challenge of jumping into projects where I know little or nothing about the problem domain or technology stack. I believe in learning something new every day and that process improvement is all about being intentional with your time and effort.

I have been programming in Java since the mid-1990's. I have developed server applications on Unix, Linux and Windows. I have written and maintained Applets, JSP/JSTL, J2EE. Stand alone applications, Spring Boot applications and hosted under Tomcat and/or JBoss. Mostly enterprise software. I have even maintained an embedded project with Java on Linux.

Took an Oracle administration course back in the day and learned about backups, etc. Later worked as a software develop writing enterprise software against a fairly complicated Oracle RAC database. During that time I rewrote their ETL system, learning PL/SQL at the same time. Dealt with optimizing both OLTP and OLAP queries and optimizing the ETL operations also. Worked with SQL Server, MySql and PostgreSQL for various projects also.

At one of my previous jobs, I wrote a pretty complicated set of XSLT sheets that allowed templates to be used to render Credit Union statements off some data processed directly from the payment processor. Learning that XSLT is a functional language, how to write optimal (speed and memory use) XSLT and how to debug XSLT was all very important. Later encounters with XSLT were much simpler, and I have been glad to have gained that earlier experience.
