Experience in the development of complex object models and their implementation
in the Visual Basic environment. Assisted in the creation of several
tools (see OrganizeIt and Genesis below) to speed up and standardize
the object development and implementation process.
A tool designed to aid in the collection, management and distribution
of information that makes up the requirements of any development project.
Produces rich text format output completely formatted using pre-defined
A development environment that works in conjunction with VB to collect
and manage system specifications for an application project. It also
manages components of the data and meta-data models to create "Intelligent
Objects" for use in the VB application. Genesis also produces Word
and fully linked HTML documentation for all aspects of the project and
data models. Genesis will also embed objects in the application that
handle many of the non-data related tasks that the application must
generally perform. Genesis also creates VB code for a database support
tool that is used to create and maintain the database under software
control. Use of Genesis has resulted in 40% to 80% reductions in application
development time depending on the project. The code inference engine
produces error-free code at the rate of over 1,000,000 lines per minute.
Broad experience in user interface design. Developed interfaces to meet
a broad range of needs. Experience in interface continuity standards.
Co-Developed Screens On The Fly that has an IDE to create bound forms
requiring no application specific code. This component performs extended
data validation before persisting the data to disk. These screens can
be hosted in an application containing the supporting ActiveX (COM)
components. Also co-developed a set of components that use the "Intelligent
Objects" created by Genesis to build screens dynamically with extensive
Developed and implemented standards for system development, screen design,
report design, database structure and normalization as well as computer-based
Designed and developed standard Windows help files.
Testing / Deployment
Implemented regression testing programs and developed test scripts for
product deployment. Experience in .dll / .ocx version management on
distributed desktops. Experience with various application installation
and update methodologies.
Experience in performance tuning, database normalization, multi-user
locking problems and client server upsizing working in mixed database
API / Third party
Extensive use of the Windows API and third party tools to enhance Visual
Proficient in training clients to program in Visual Basic and MS Access.
