Analyzing the Analyzers
I have over 6 years experience as a software developer, first working in a Linux/Apache/PHP/MySQL focus, and now working in a more broad developer role that uses mostly C# and AngularJS while interacting with a number of modern services and libraries, such as Amazon Web Services.
My more recent professional work has made unique use of the Excel Primary Interop Assembly with a learning method to normalize and structure previously non-uniform data.
In my off hours I work on side projects with Firebase/NoSQL and AWS or Google Cloud Platform.
I have provided planning and strategy support to a number of clients.
I have worked with companies across the country in planning out projects specifications, finding and vetted vendors for both internal and external needs, managed in-house developers as well as contractors, and now work "on the inside" with an medium-sized company with a unique set of technology needs.
