I am currently employed full time for StayWell as a Senior Applications Developer, where I have been since 2010.
My primary responsibilities have included maintaining and extending our primary external facing web application (StayWell Portal), implementing client customizations and building/maintaining miscellaneous internal applications.
Some interesting projects I have taken part in while at StayWell:
Goal: Provide front- and back-end employment application search and management functionality.
Users are able to search for jobs based on location and position type. The users can then fill out and submit the application online. Administrators can manage job listings and announcements that appear on the front-end. The admin is also able to add notes to, set the statuses of, search through or print the submitted applications.
Goal: News content management.
For this project I built a user login and a simple content manager for adding, removing and editing news items.
Goal: A simple interface to connect Bodyfit's website to their gift certificate purchase page at paypal.com.
This project was a standard paypal integration with a form that accepts the gift certificate amount, recipient's name, sender's name and forwards that information on to paypal to complete the transaction.
Goal: Create application form that dyncamically converts result into a PDF document.
This 3 step employment application captures the user's information, dynamically generates a PDF document and emails a notification to the administrator.
Goal: Build a static informational site, customize a shopping cart and seamlessly integrate the two.
Photoshop documents were transformed into a matching custom site and a Magento template.
Goal: Informational site and a lead generation form.
I used a custom PHP template engine I wrote to facilitate quick construction of this site.
Goal: Build content management for Display Boys' flash website.
Goal: A customized ecommerce website.
Customized and deployed a ZenCart implementation to meet the customer's needs.
While at Evolutioncard I built a number of PHP web applications to assist the call center. I also assisted in maintaining the customer facing PHP website.
Goal: Create a front-end website for a shopping cart hosted at Nexternal.
Built front-end homepage and search utility and integrated it into a third party shopping cart application on a separate website.
Goal: Build a custom informational website and implement an ecommerce solution.
Built a custom site with a lead generation form and integrated a customized Magento eCommerce shopping cart solution.
Goal: Create back-end content management and make that content available for the flash application. Create an interface for job applicants to upload their resume and cover letter and select which jobs they are interested in.
Goal: Build a corporate store on the company intranet that integrates with third party fulfillment.
Application was written in ASP.NET/C# to cater to the client's hosting environment. The site functions as a normal shopping cart but submits the information via HTTP request to the fulfillment company's server instead of processing payment information or handling other standard ecommerce tasks.
Goal: Build website from Photoshop documents and transfer content of old site to the new site.
Built corporate intranet website using ASP.NET/C# to cater to client's hosting environment. Ported content from old intranet to this new site.
Goal: Salvage code written by offshore freelance developer and finish developing custom CRM.
This site includes many features, including the following:
While working full-time for HW Lochner I helped develop a new company intranet. I also developed a static site for the Peoria Eastern Bypass project.
Goal: Add an image gallery to Nerve's placeholder website.
I used a free flash image gallery called SimpleViewer.
Goal: Implement designs for a prototype of O.C. Tanner's new program management software.
Although the prototype was built primarily for displaying the visual template I was asked to implement functionality for a few pages in the site so they could get a good feel for how things would look and feel.
Goal: Create an informational website based on Photoshop documents.
Goal: Create an informational website for the Peoria Eastern Bypass Study that will allow users to read about the project and download associated PDF documents.
