Title: Program Analyst: Coldfusion , Transact SQL
Location: Lockheed Martin (contract) Richland, WA
Duration: 06/2004 - 11/2004
This project required an extremely abbreviated timeline to replace a mission critical documents management and work flow system used to process defense retirement and annuity client correspondence and was developed as a plug in for the E*Stars (Electronic Suspense Tracking and Routing System) Flash application used by the USAF and DOE.
The new project database was designed as an expansion of E*Stars (the E*Stars program is a Government-Off-The-Shelf (GOTS) solution and could not be modified in any way), creative use of cross database Stored Procedures (SP) were used to insert and merge data outputs. In writing many of the ad hoc reporting features SP's, I accessed three separate databases merging and manipulating the data prior to output. Some analysis of Data Transformation Services (DTS) packages using SQL Server Enterprise Manager, SQL server job analysis, analysis of locks, and SQL Profiler used to trace bottleneck and optimize queries and SP's.
Using Homesite+, Coldfusion MX (CFMX) coding used a combination of modified framework and object oriented programming (OOP) techniques. Coldfusion Components (CFC's) were used exclusively to access data. Much attention was given to the creation of clear and concise CFC library definitions to order to maximize the reuse of CFC data access objects.
Working with the test engineer, I developed test cases to verify data output and performance and helped with scripts for Load Runner software used by the test engineer. After each major release a new round of regression testing would verify that code additions or modifications had not caused additional errors. When each module was complete, I authored a Functional Design Document (FDD) outlining in detail each function of the module.

Title: Coldfusion Application Developer, Transact SQL Developer, Flash Developer
Location: Kennewick, WA
Duration: 10/1998 - 05/2003
Job Duties: Primary designer and programmer for many data driven web sites and Internet applications, scope of responsibilities included: client development, site architecture, database design, CFML template generation, SWF and Script integration, graphic content creation and quality control.
As chief architect, transact SQL and Coldfusion programmer for two multi-year projects, landreuse.com (National Institute for Environmental Renewal [NIER] informational web site showcasing environmental remediation strategies and educational modules compete with a informational retention tests), and learningtowrite.com (LTW) (an online English writing curriculum and testing application used by high schools and junior colleges), I managed primary project responsibilities.
Much of my project management of LTW tasks included meeting with the program content and test authors to formulate requirements and document development milestones, delegating some proofing, test, and coding tasks, and seeking advanced input from educational, programming, and graphic functional area experts or consultants.
LTW, the largest and most recent project (3 years in development, 2000 - 2003) consisted of 50 separate SQL databases dynamically assigned by the authentication and content SQL server allowing for scalability. This highly complex database consisted of over 50 tables containing authentication, environmental preference, progress, and test data on for School Districts, Schools, Teachers and Students. Tasks included optimization using Profiler, execution plans and statistics to optimize SQL performance. In addition, most of our dynamic content web clients also had data bases imported, linked, or rewritten from the original Access 97 databases to SQL Server 2000 during this period.
Using a custom Switch Box methodology, LTW 2.1+ was designed as a single page framework where every page including frame sets and popup windows pushed through the default template that included action and display switches to control security, data access, and dynamic content display. Custom tags and CF Modules where used throughout the application to optimize code reuse.
Although no off the shelf programs were used for version control and test case creation, I employed code segregation methods similar to Visual Source Safe to ensure that code modification could be rolled back. At the time we used screen captures of displays to validate expected results for each regression case.
Using Robohelp I created extensive help files for consumption as web help and print media.
