    Created complex template based administration screens, which enabled total separation of content and backend
     coding to allow for effective maintenance and enhancements. This entailed utilization of html templates and
     separate backend Java classes/DB (oracle) access coding,
    Made connectivity code multithreaded to enable Viewer operation if DB is down.

     optimized SQL code such that hash joins were performed rather then loops, which are very inefficient.
    Converted from VSS code revision system to CVS. Wrote all bash shell scripts for the conversion as well as scripts
     for deploying our code to our staging servers.

Consultant/Senior Software Developer at Evolve Products Inc.
    Redesigned Microsoft Access database and wrote numerous Perl scripts utilizing DBI/DBD/ODBC in NT server
     environment to insert/update new TV guide channel lineup records received on a daily basis from Tribune.
    Since daily data feed encompassed 750,000 records, fast speed was imperative and computer resources were
     limited, wrote Perl scripts using a combination of index array and hash arrays. The index array, used in the
     capacity of a RAM disk, was used to limit memory usage while providing fast data access, while the hash arrays
     were used as pointers to segment out sections of data stored in the index array.
    Got Internet and intranet web servers operational, using IIS and Apache http servers respectively.
    Migrated Access databases to SQL server. Setup SQL Server to operate with current database access Perl
    Using Visual C++, modified a C++ image conversion program to convert images from png format to an image
     format called sbm, which is similar in nature to the bitmap format bmp. The difference between sbm and bmp is
     how the data is oriented and little endian vs. big endian data representation.
