I promote company objectives through security policies. I deliver efficiency and cost-effectiveness. I automate so you're always up and responsive.
I have a rich history of interoperability, migrations, low-level programming, reverse engineering, and technical documentation.
I'm an expert Linux systems programmer with 15+ years of experience. I deliver excellence. I engineer high performance and high availability.
I work with you to determine the technology of your project by helping you come up with a list of your project's capabilities and a list of your project's requirements. I give you a detailed breakdown, step-by-step of what's involved to complete your project. I work with you to draft a guaranteed plan that delivers your project in time and on budget. I guarantee to complete your project by a fixed hourly rate per a maximum number of hours.
I use your list of your project's capabilities and your list of your project's requirements to build a system of separated network services in a isolated local network within a testing environment. I ensure this system satisfies your project's basic requirements via QA testing. In this special environment components of your project are glued together using shell scripts, process scheduling, and common tooling.
I use your project's prototypes to build a system of integrated network services in a production-like network within a development environment. I prove this system represents proof of concept with the minimum features to satisfy your project's capabilities and your project's requirements via QA testing. I ensure your system is operational, but it may need further customization to be ready for your production environment.
I use your project's minimum viable product to build a system of integrated network services that's operational and ready for your end-users. I ensure this system has been customized for the needs of your production environment. I prove the features of this system satisfies your project's capabilities and your project's requirements via QA testing and independent verification.
