I have 13 years of software-related experience, most recently as a Six Sigma Black Belt doing process improvement work in the Unit Testing, Release Management and Metrics area. Prior to that, I was a lead SAS developer for 8 years, managing all aspects of the software development lifecycle. Twelve months ago I began working in Java, getting Sun Certified (SCJA, June 2008), and primarily developing web applications using the latest Java technologies including JSP, Servlets, Struts and MySQL. I am currently seeking an internship or full time role in Java development, or in a related position as a quality or release engineer in the Java space.
Summary: Sun Certified Java Associate (SCJA). Eight years as the lead SAS developer in a detail-oriented department with client-impacting deadlines. Experience with refactoring code, library design, code encapsulation, and project management. Twelve years as a proven leader in continuous improvement of process and coding practices.
