Lead Programmer/Analyst
May 2001 - Present

I am the Lead Programmer/Analyst of the Educate, Inc. Enterprise Web Development team. I oversee the development, documentation, maintenance and standards of over two dozen web sites and applications that receive over 200 million hits a month. I have project management responsibilities and have complete knowledge of all phases of life-cycle development. I prepare detailed technical/functional specifications for new web sites, enhancements, scope changes and maintenance. I create "all-in" estimates for new web sites and projects on a routine basis and have a history of always hitting my estimates and deadlines.

I create the architectural design, database design and lead the development of web sites that are multi-lingual and have secure custom web based administration portals. I instruct, direct and check the work of other programmers on the Enterprise Web Development team, while mentoring junior level programmers. I research and recommend technical solutions for web server capacity, performance and limitations in a multiple clustered server environment. I evaluate, recommend and introduce new technologies in support of the ever-changing direction of the company business.

I keep a wide knowledge through first hand experience and research of current browser trends and browser compatibility issues on multiple platforms. This knowledge began with Mosaic in college, through the browser wars of Netscape & Internet Explorer, continuing today with Internet Explorer 8, Firefox and Chrome.

I have worked with the SCRUM/Agile Development Methodology as well as the Waterfall methodology at Sylvan.

I also maintained the WebTrends server and the current Urchin server for web site traffic reporting, and Mods, which is an issue tracking/tasking system that I developed.
