Developer Profile

I am an experienced web application developer specializing in database driven applications with web front ends. I have experience in Linux, Solaris, Tru64 Unix, Informix (damn them all to hell), MySQL, Apache, Miva, PHP, PHP, PHP, Perl, XML, XSLT and now (but not thankfully so) IBM MQSeries. Although it is irrelevant in this environment, I am also capable of telephone switch administration on the GTD5, 5ESS, DMS10, and DMS100... though I cannot do so without a reference of some sort. I excel at database design and rapid application development. Although my design skills are lacking, I am capable of HTML and JavaScript... but I only do so when I have to. I have VERY limited graphic design capabilities (i.e. I can smack colored anti-aliased text on a background and save it as a PNG). I also have moderate experience in TCP/IP and basic Unix system administration. Though I don't like to admit it... I am capable of administering an NT/Win2k server... but refuse to do so without putting up a fight.

My day job consists of developing internal applications to improve process flow and mechanize day to day tasks for provisioners and managers of a large telecommunications corporation (sounds like I am at a job interview). I am required to juggle up to 10 different projects at any given time, train other developers on new technologies, perform technical writing tasks, handle database and application design for all projects my team handles, provide technical assistance when other developers are stuck, and still write about 30% of all code produced by our 8 man group.

Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.
