|Current Work in Progress|
I am currently employed as an IT Systems Administrator in charge of the company's web based intranet project (Livelink - http://www.opentext.com) in all phases from the installation and configuration of the application and database servers through to the browser configuration on the clients as well as dealing with all the support issues both internal and externally. In addition I am also the lead developer / architect for several European and Global projects in a variety of technologies from VBA to PowerBuilder, C# to Lotus Notes.
This is a similar role to that I held at Sun Valley, where I was also involved in the development of the new configuration for all of their PC's. My specific role within this small group (about 8 people) was to ensure that the browser component is correctly configured and stable for use with web based systems and eCommerce. That has involved a lot of my time in the testing and documentation as well as the research and investigation of the NT registry and MIME types.
I have also worked as a Freelance IT Consultant specialising in web related work, see my Consultancy website - Adservio Consulting.
In addition to these I have been working with a variety of other Technologies including .Net, Visual Basic & PHP. I have also been keeping my other skill sets such up to date such as Java, SQL, OO methodology, programming in general (specifically web related) and other areas of it.
At present I am spending a lot of time working with Livelink to support the existing infrastructure and to plan future enhancements and upgrades.
