Eliot Research and Consulting (consulting for Goodyear Tires), Kingston, ON, Canada
Software Developer, April 2011 - Sept 2011
Sole developer on three projects for Goodyear Tires:
  • CrossTab: Using XML to specify configuration parameters, the CrossTab displays data from Goodyear's tire manufacturing plant as a multi-tabbed, non-editable grid. The purpose here is to calculate and present data in a format that makes sense to a Goodyear employee. Other features include extensive styling capabilities, charting and raw data view.
  • PivotReport: Similar to the CrossTab, allowing rows and columns to be pivoted.
  • BuildSequencer: Displays Goodyear's data in an editable list format, where each item in the list has an order number that can be modified by rearranging the items in the list using drag and drop.
Technologies used: Flex 4, Java/J2EE (for a RESTful web service), Oracle DB

the PYXIS innovation, Kingston, ON, Canada
Software Developer, July 2007 - March 2011
As part of the PYXIS software development team, I worked on their flagship product, WorldView, an application that allows on-the-fly integration, visualization and analysis of geospatial data. My focus was on writing test-driven code (TDD) that is user-facing, examples of which are an undo/redo command system, a data-bounded Tree/List interface for displaying data sources and a plug-in scripting infrastructure enabling easy extension of WorldView's capabilities. Being a small startup, PYXIS empowered me to wear many other hats. I was also in charge of administering and maintaining the servers and hubs that make up PYXIS' P2P network and ensured their smooth operation. Towards the end of my tenure, I was their lead tester. In addition, some of my other non-software development responsibilites included:
  • Creating and maintaining a continuous integration server to automatically build, test and deploy all our products after every code check-in.
  • Rescuing our build and Subversion server from an old and failing hardware by using VMware vCenter Converter to convert it to a Virtual Machine and moving it onto new hardware. As a result, builds became twice as fast and we now had an easy-to-perform backup and snapshot plan.
  • Configuring and administering Trac, a ticket/incident tracking system, and the use of it for day-to-day development and testing tasks.
Technologies used: C# for .Net 2.0 and .Net 3.5, native C++, SWIG, Boost, STL, SQLite, COM

Software Developer, September 2006 - April 2007 (Part-time)
Was a member of a group of six students that developed an application that integrated two soil carbon models and mapped the output from these models using ArcGIS. We hope that our software will ve used as a reference implementation for other software that would be adopted by the members of the United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization (UN FAO) as tools to aid in the mitigation of global warming.
