                                       ACCOMPLISH MENTS

       Directed the design, development, and testing of the original Orca Medical Emergency
        Department software acquired by SpaceLabs, which was, renamed Emergency Chart.
       Improved project management functions by developing an Internet-based issue tracking system,
        implementing design-specification maintenance standards, and heightening quality control
       Developed all facets of, including online store, internal search engine with
        Boolean search capabilities, chat rooms, and a discussion forum. Increased web access speed by
        enabling the Active Server Pages to be automatically converted to HTML pages through a
        scheduling task conversion application.
       As early as 2003, I was implementing AJAX technology (using XMLHTTP) to develop web
        application that would not require full page refreshing each time the user makes a selection.
       Developed an automated method to test a system model dialog that was once historically thought
        it could only manually testable. Created methods to automate user-interface components that
        were previously being test solely through manually interactive approaches.
       For Visual FoxPro; created a means to implement a Junit concept (Funit) to imbed unit tests into
        the code as it is being developed. These are used to run Unit Test to validate exist and new code
        during development.
       Create a general purpose (and expandable) to generate script for application build procedure,
        and schedule report print at designated times. This also includes an Auto-Update for the client-
        side application, where when the application starts; it queries the host (HQ) for the latest version
        and downloads, updates, and configures the client side automatically.
       A universal query engine to allow Visual FoxPro to access and query (SQL) many data lists and
        then output the results to other data lists (Query).
