About James

I have 20 years in the UNIX environment managing applications and am very familiar with UNIX tools such as AWK, grep, sed, regular expressions etc. I am an expert in UNIX shell scripting and enjoy teaching others in how to program in the UNIX environment.

While at Wells Fargo, I wrote legacy scripts to automate the transfer of files to multiple servers and to use shell scripts to replace a Tivoli GUI program. Also, I was put in charge of software distribution to Well Fargo's 10,000 ATMs and wrote all of the monitoring scripts as well as updated how data was entered
into the ATM database.

I am familiar with Microsofts SQL and have written both queries and stored procedures for Wells Fargo.

I started out sorting checks for the Bank of California, then got trained on IBM computers at a time when programs were on punched cards. In this environment, I began to get interested in computer languages and wrote some assembly and cobol code before discovering the interesting world of UNIX and shell scripting. Besides Bank of California, I have worked at Pacific Bell, ATT, HP and Wells Fargo.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

UNIX

I have 20+ years in the UNIX environment and am familiar with UNIX commands as well as the korn shell scripting language.
I was hired by Wells Fargo Bank to do UNIX software distribution on both HP and AIX machines. I was put in charge of pushing software to the bank's 10,000 ATMs, I wrote all of the monitoring scripts for the distribution as well as improving the scripts to update the AYTM database. For our Mortgage customer, I wrote a legacy script to automate the distribution of software to multiple servers rather than do the job manually. Another legacy script was to replace a Tivoli GUI.
