WideOrbit - November 2000 to Present
From their web site: "WideOrbit is the leading provider of business management software for media companies. Our product lines include solutions for sales, traffic, media networks, radio automation and promotion optimization."
I am a WideOrbit developer working on their broadcast and network products primarily using Delphi and SQLServer. Through the years I have done projects including deep-zoom, Silverlight, WPF and Windows Forms.
The core product is written using Delphi. Some popular VCS’s used include RBuilder, DevExpress, Indi, Asta and many more. The server layer is a robust expandable architecture. A largely proprietary rpc mechanism allows for secure communication between the client, any client, and the servers. Object serialization is wholly proprietary and secure. The client is very robust with many unique and propriety controls. In addition to the Delphi development I have done C# development such as an analytics tool using the MS PivotGrid, Deep-zoom projects using application images, WPF interactive reporting system and more. WideOrbit has also provided advanced technical training on Delphi, C# and Silverlight, Windows 8 Development and MS Azure.

McArmi Solutions is a small but busy development team working on various special projects. Currently we are writing a warehouse environment monitoring system for the pharmaceutical industry.

I am the DBA using SQLServer and 1 of 2 client side developers using C# on the Windows Forms platform.

Install and Build Engineer for Kinetix, a division of Autodesk. I was responsible for writing Setup programs using InstallShield3 for many of their products such as RadioRay, 3D Studio Max, VIZPack, and others. Created a "library" of functionality common to Kinetix to be reused for all Kinetix setup programs. My responsibilities also included weekly release builds for 3D Studio Max and Character Studio using Visual Studio.
QuickResponse Service - February 1997 - August 1997
QRS performs UPC transactions and services for their customer base. Using Installshield3 I created an Intel/Windows based setup program for their suite of Internet products. This single installation program was designed to install any combination of their 11 products. I also created a Setup Wizard for their internal use. The wizard is a user-friendly InstallShield program that is capable of generating 1 of 3 different commonly used setup programs based on user selections and walks the user through the process of creating a setup program for distribution.
DCC Technical Management Group - February 1996 - December 1996
This is a small software house owned by DCC who is owned by the DANA Corporation. They had one primary product, 'Wyzdom', written in Paradox. It was a transaction based desktop asset management repository for large corporations. My first assignment was to "transform" the Lease Transaction of Wyzdom from their old coding methodology to their new one. I wrote a data conversion program to convert NetCensus (adiscovery tool for asset inventory) data into Wyzdom data. I wrote in Paradox, a Wyzdom API that reports on the differences between a Wyzdom database and a NetCensus database.
