25 years of experience in information technology, particularly web application development. Strong advocate of agile, lean, and scrum. Passionate about devops, reducing cycle-time, and mentoring.
15+ years in software development and engineering with multiple languages (Java, PHP, .Net, Python). Been there, done that.
Scrum Master, sprints, backlog grooming, story points. Prefer Kanban? Yeah, I've got that too.
Teamwork, collaboration, transparency: we're all on the same team, striving for the same goals. Let's work together for the customer's interest, not our own.
"He who receives an idea from me, receives instruction himself without lessening mine; as he who lights his taper at mine, receives light without darkening me."
Robert C. Martin
"This world is your best teacher. There is a lesson in everything. There is a lesson in each experience. Learn it and become wise. Every failure is a stepping stone to success. Every difficulty or disappointment is a trial of your faith. Every unpleasant incident or temptation is a test of your inner strength. Therefore nil desperandum. March forward hero!"
At CDK Global, my primary responsibility is to manage 2 distinct teams (9 engineers) within the Application Lifecycle Management department. As part of the ALM leadership group, we provide consultative services to development managers in the area of software development, build, release, deploy, operations, and monitoring of hosted applications. We promote agile and devops philosophies in order to continuously deliver improved software to our customers. ALM supports over 2000 developers world-wide and over 140 product lines.
At OHSU, my primary responsibility was the oversight and management of the web application platform for the public website and private intranet. From custom application development, to security monitoring and remediation, to implementation of SDLC pipeline services, I was able to provide comprehensive solutions for the organization's web application development community. Often this required working collaboratively with additional ITG members from networking, database, linux/windows, and IT Security.
At Mentor Graphics, my primary role was a web application systems engineer, supporting multiple corporate websites and web applications. Working closely with development teams, we provided server application support, load balancing services, health monitoring, reliability reports,source control, and release management support.
I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.
