I served five years in the U.S. Navy. My last year in the Navy I came up with an idea for a website. I hired a web development company to build the website and I was not satisfied with their work. In turn, I picked up some books on web development and this was the beginning of my new career.
Ruby, Java, C#
Test Driven Development and Pair Programming
Design, Programming, SQL, MySQL, PostgresSQL
SDLCs (Agile and Scrum), Frameworks (Ruby on Rails), Source Control (Git and GitHub), Testing(Rspec and MiniTest), and proficient skills on Linux
Primary work was on the database tier using SQL Server 2008, which involves the following: stored procedure and query analysis, system design, technical specifications documentation, writing queries and stored procedures, database maintenance, unit test plans and testing, and implementation plans. I utilized effective communication skills, writing skills, work dynamically in teams, and I am flexible when projects require extended hours.
I graduated magna cum laude with a B.S. in Information Systems. My degree concentration was in web development.
