Our role is to define standards and develop products to be deployed to all the local operations in seven countries. My Role: • Integrate Story Board Design Templates and Code into a merged dynamic scalable web application suite. • Administration of web content for multiple sites and alteration features when requested. • Front-End integration of current web applications to the required client’s request for the company look and feel. • Delivering corporate web sites in efficient time frames. • Compiling User Guides, User Requirements and Technical Specification Documents. • Customer Support and upgrading of current web applications. • Evaluating Web Application Solutions that could be beneficial to the company’s benefit. • Researching the mobile/internet market for current and future trends that would be beneficial towards the companies’ own growth. • Training client’s hands on in efficient time frames and later support. • Cross Browser Compatibility integration. • Developer/Administration/Assistance/Support on various consumer web applications such as Fonezone for Worldpop Ireland / United Kingdom and WebSMS for Telstra. • Most recent project completed: iDJ full server side spectrum of e-commerce/mobile functional features. • Training Gained – Employment Equity training in the work place. Most development took place on Linux or Solaris using JAVA, JSP, Java beans, EJB, Apache, Tomcat, Websphere, Sybase, XML, XSL and TIB other development using PHP, XML, XSL and Sybase. Client: iTouch PLC Project Title: Global Content Web Developer Period: October 2002 – June 2004 iTouch PLC. My role is of a web developer, technical support and systems administrator: • My primary role is to manage the development of Group content web projects. To ensure all content that is fed through the Content Team is, where required added to presentation tools, such as the Branded Content site, the Content Release site and other locations as specified by the Head Of Wireless Entertainment. I act as the key point of contact for iTouch Country developers wishing to interact with technical elements of the Content Team. • My secondary role is to seek and source web tools and applications that might improve the communication of content to the group as required by the Content Communications and Production Managers. • I am available to support the Communications Manager and Production Manager should they require assistance in any area. Support is given regardless of whether it is in loading new content into the Global database, testing content or assisting in communication projects. • Recent accomplishment was the development of “CoPro” this web based tool controls all mobile content workflow processes, manages the requesting of mobile content, the production of mobile content and the testing of mobile content to which the final sign off of the mobile content happens. The application controls estimated time frames and level prioritisation of mobile content in a request. The application is run on Sybase and I have gained significant database experience. • There was an urgent requirement for improved workflow productivity due to large amounts of content requests; the solution was this, I built the CSV Bulk Upload System on top of current processes whereby the automation of content data capturing efficiency was increased by 300%. This is initiated by the creation of a CSV file from the global content database. Unique content Ids are generated and where required or populated other information is fed into the CSV file and downloaded by content assistants. Modifications or changes are done locally and on sign-off the information is fed back into the database and updated. At the same time on sign-off referential text documents are written to a file system and bundled with content (zipped) into downloadable packages. The text in which the information is captured is in a user-friendly format so transition to the new process was an easy step. • A WAP tool I built was a WAP enabled site that assisted the Content Quality Testers with the testing of graphical content. This increased work productivity by a further 50%. • I designed and implemented the database schema for mobile manufacturers and handset models this is integrated within most current systems where required. This is the iTouch Global Systems Handset Database. Originally the functionality of this was to service the global partners where in the case of faulty content the client logs into a secure interface and specifies in detail the issue at hand, submits the details and content managers are notified with urgency. The global database is updated to render the content in a repair status and when final assurance is confirmed the client is notified that the content is corrected. • A flat HTML based website that displays java games was proving to be a hindrance to time when updating. I built a PHP GUI system whereby the administrator can seamlessly manage the site. The system was built in four days. This is not only for display purposes but also a highly detailed information resource for handset compatibility with java games. • I recently built a tool that caters the global content administrators with unique alias naming conventions for content items, previously this was done by excel. I built this so that the transition from a locally shared file process to a PHP web based solution would be in a matter of minutes. Client: FormFunction Project Title: Systems Developer Period: July 2004 – Current My role is of a systems developer. • Client liaison • Design scope; Meet and explore client requirements and expand on the basic functionality. • Project time line preparation; sufficient time management and costing estimates are provided. • Research; Evaluation of possible solutions that may play a beneficial role in the delivery of work. • Development and Coordinator; Embracement of Open Source software such as SMARTY template systems and Content Management Systems such as ‘Typo3’ has provided a sufficient window into the world of outsourcing freely available applications. • Testing and Quality Assurance; High level to detail so as to provide a seamless handover of work done. I am familiar with most mobile and web terminology and will thrive with the guidance and necessary training to grow on top of my current skill sets from my current experience. My strengths are PHP, XSL, XML, HTML, DHTML, SMIL, WAP and JavaScript. I am secure in knowing that given a new server side technology language to learn would not be an issue to pick up.
