Dear Student or Parent,
Being a software developer is more than just learning to program in a computer language. I have been a web developer for almost two decades. I have designed many web sites from concept to deployment, some high-profile. I have served as a Lead Developer for many years, mentoring other developers and teaching them the latest technologies and best practices. I focus on teaching patterns and reusable methods for designing applications, and reinforcing the need to stay current as new technologies are released. I can give advice on how to focus your learning efforts to target specific types of development positions, and interviewing advice for finding a position within a software company. I have programmed in C++ for about 10 years prior to using C# and focusing on web technologies, which I have now been doing for around 8 years. While I have focused on using jQuery / Microsoft .NET / C# and have a background in C++, I have also used VB / VB.NET, touched on PHP/MySQL, and worked with SQL Server for 10+ years.
Domain Driven Design is a basis for each of my projects' structure, and I reinforce the need to some best practices when coding. I can also explain SCRUM, which is used by many companies for handling team project management.
If your final senior project is a "Concept to POC" type of project where the Proof of Concept is the working software required for a grade, then I will also teach you to use Balsamiq to wireframe your ideas before we begin developing any code.
I can help you document the Project Scope, Functional Specs, create Design Documents, and build the presentation for your senior college project. We can build completely usable projects in a short time, both the user interface and the server components as needed.
My focuses are HTML5 / CSS3, jQuery, Object Relational Mapping (ORM), Web Services (web api) and SQL Express.
I have been using Microsoft ASP.NET and .NET in general for about 8 years. I've developed multiple web sites at multiple companies in ASP.NET with a superior understanding of master pages, themes, page life cycle, AJAX panels, web forms and controls, authentication, and deployment on IIS.
All of my development projects from 2007 until now have been Microsoft .NET C# based projects. The majority were web applications, but there were some windows forms applications as well. I have a strong understanding of object oriented programming, and I use Domain Driven Design as a basis for project structure. Prior to C# I was a C++ developer for 10 years. My projects were both business a social based development projects.
Prior to C# I was a C++ developer for 10 years with some original Basic and Pascal programming even earlier than that. All of my development projects from 2007 until now have been Microsoft .NET C# based projects. The majority were web applications, but there were some windows forms applications as well. I have a strong understanding of object oriented programming, and I use Domain Driven Design as a basis for project structure. My projects were both business a social based development projects.
Virtually all of my web and windows forms projects from the past 10+ have been coupled with SQL Server or SQL Express versions 2005 to 2012. I can tutor on most types of queries, creating sensible data designs with referential integrity, and tuning performance. My skills do not include higher level (DBA knowledge) features like SSIS, Integration, Analysis, or Replication services.
