About Fernando

Proficient and Patient software engineer with over 15 years of experience building significant enterprise applications. After graduating Magna Cum Laude in 2001 with a BS in Computer Science, I started out my career as a C++ programmer building highly optimized applications for extremely large data sets. My career progressed into becoming one of the key developers in creating a large maintenance system.

I am currently a Senior Software Engineer, who leads and mentors a team of Java developers in ensuring the success of enhancing and maintaining a large system with a large transaction volume. My day to day activities include planning, designing, analyzing, and improving the architecture of this system.

I have significant experience implementing the industry's best coding practices. These practices include:

- Object Oriented Programming
- Test Driven Development
- Continuous Integration
- Maintainable Code Practices
- Secure Coding Practices
- Clean Separation of Concerns
- Automated Testing
- Agile Development
- Source Code Control
- working in a highly optimized environment as indicated by CMMI Level 3 and ISO 9000.
