Senior Designer and Engineer - Liquid Thinking
March - April 2001. DevX (www.devx.com) is a site dedicated to providing information to the development community. I designed an upgraded object model in TogetherJ and SQL Server 2000, for eventual creation in Alliare Cold Fusion and Allaire's content Management Product SPECTRA. Wrote XML MSLT Transformations from the DocBook DTD for inbound syndication. Due to financial constraints this project is currently on hold.
Senior Engineer - Wells Fargo Bank
Oct - Dec 2000. RedECash is an on-line billpay consortium with Chase and Wells Fargo (much like PayPals). Using WebMethods, Java and in particular Java JNI, I hooked up the XML communication between the legacy systems of Wells Fargo and Chase. The project is complex and is still in development. Ultimately there will be ATM cards issued that are connected to a customer's checking account. The card number can be used safely on the web without revealing a bank account number or a credit card number.

This involved learning JSP, Java Bean design with JSP and Enterprise Java Beans (EJB) under BEA Weblogic. In addition I was asked to evaluate various Java IDEs such as Jbuilder Pro, Visual Café, and Forte. In addition I became familiar with installation and use of Oracle 8i.

This system transfers value between Type MM4 Smart Cards.

During the summer of 1998 I was retained by VISA International to upgrade to VB 5.0 and localize the Credit Card Enrollment System. I successfully Internationalized the application for all foreign languages including Japanese, Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese. I designed a relational data model and used Access and SQL to provide data persistence. I also built the installation program. Over the course of testing I installed Windows/95, Windows/NT, Visual Basic 5.0 and Office/97 in multiple languages including French, Japanese, and Chinese.
