PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE / PORTFOLIO
Senior Developer | Veteran Engineering & Technology | San Antonio, TX. Jan 2017 – Present
Senior Developer – ColdFusion 2018 programmer (SQL Server 2012 Database). I upgrade and support the current systems for the United States Air Force for the Working Dog Management System (WDMS) project which includes all branches of the military (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and the Department of Defense Dog Center). I maintain the current applications with a strict release processes using fortify for the security approval process. Responsible for all code changes, the documented fix with a list of all the files modified and a passing security scan with a test case per change request. My editing tool is eclipse using the Team Foundation Server for the version source control. Responsible for managing the development and testing teams for WDMS. Work closely with the team´s configuration manager to schedule version releases. Work with various departments within the military to ensure rapid application development by gathering requirements, create effort estimations and perform data analysis.

Senior Developer | State Of Idaho | Boise, ID. Jul 2011 – Jan 2017
Senior Developer – ColdFusion 11 programmer (MS SQL 2008 R2 Database). Upgraded and supported PERSI (Public Employee Retirement System of Idaho). The system maintained roughly 810 employers, 100,000 members (or public employees) and around 80,000 web accounts including insurance vendors, employer contacts and PERSI members. I implemented a 6.1 Fusebox framework and maintained a highly secure application using CFCs (ColdFusion Components). My most significant achievement was building a component browser interface where other technical administrators could interact with the CFC (ColdFusion Component) methods via form post. This interaction would update the end-users data or to get data for the end-users process. These were the same methods invoked within the ColdFusion code. Very cool stuff. My second most proud application was the creation of My Secure Directory. A dynamically driven application (no database) that created the end-users directory to exchange (upload/download) secure documents. The application would notify the in-house employee(s) via email that a document was uploaded and had its own clean-up process. The overall size of the storage space need with grow and shrink on a daily bases. This was a very efficient process considering there were so many end-users.
