WORK HISTORY
    Software Developer, Spice and Seasoning Company, February 2000 - August 2003
  • Acted as the company's sole software developer, and technical guru responsible for business analysis, technical research, problem definition, and resolution to include interaction with ERP, and software vendors.
  • Created a workflow system to approve purchase orders, to process product development requests, and to resolve problems with material. Employees are selected for the workflow to review, approve, or process a request based on document attributes like sales territory, requestor’s department, etc. The document routing ensures that each selected employee receives notification by email to act on a document. User sign-offs are indicated using the user Windows Logon, or, for the internet, a cookie.
  • Created Sales and Accounts Receivable reporting using MS-Access, and SQL Server. An object-oriented approach allows users to create a myriad of reports from a single dialog that allows for filtering, sorting, selection of summary field headings, and an option to include details that explain summary calculations. Summary options include yearly, monthly, and weekly time buckets.
  • Created a VB.Net application, CostCalc, to assist product technologists in creating new product formulas, and to aid them in formulating FDA compliant labels. This application adds, and removes columns – a task well suited to ADO.Net., and the Data Grid control.
  • Created a VB.Net application to email customers sales order confirmations. The email contained a sales order link to a ASP.Net web page to display the order details. The email also contained a marketing piece created in HTML effectively using the sales order confirmation as advertising space.
  • Created a commodity tracking application using ASP.Net that hides certain columns based on user profile.
  • Created a PO Requisition system utilizing XSL and XML constructed by an ASP page to dynamically sort, and select web page data.
  • Received notification of application errors using a Web Service that emails the error messages.
  • Created applications that schedule delivery, create reports, and email them to selected recipients.
  • Created client/server forms that display inside of email, and connect to a database using a Web Service.
