1996 - 1998

Summary

I have 20 years of Web development experience working in all areas of a Web application’s life cycle as a developer, business analyst, project manager, and web development business owner. I have a minimum of 8 years of development experience (VB.NET [4], C# [2], VBScript/ASP [2]). I also was a professional technical writer prior to working as a Web Developer. 

Throughout my career, I have worked in different Web hosting environments, such as, Amazon virtual servers or Godaddy Windows and Linux servers, as well as, internal or off site company hosting servers.

As an ASP.NET Web Developer, I have created several Web applications (custom user controls, Web pages, MasterPages, site maps, business objects, themes, etc.) with their respective databases, including, tables and T-SQL stored procedures. I'm proactive and have strong problem-solving abilities and documentation/communication skills, and design with sound business processes and standards in mind. I have worked mainly in an Agile development process but I am also familiar with other processes, such as, Scrum.

1998 - 2000

I have worked with key stakeholders from the beginning, gathering business requirements and translating them into the most detailed design and technical specification documents, ensuring customer requirements are met and development time is reduced. I also reduced unnecessary lost time by clarifying the overall Web application objectives based on customer requirements, by providing user interface mockups and sitemaps.

Throughout each phase, in an iterative Agile development process, I continuously communicated with stakeholders and meticulously managed and relayed design changes, and documented and managed application bugs through issue tracking systems, ensuring projects are completed on time and under budget.

I have excellent communication and documentation skills and have used them to create supporting documentation for each project. Such documentation includes technical specifications for front- and back-end development, database schemas, flowcharts, project timelines and milestones, and test plans and test cases.
