My career started in the clothing industry at an early age. I became interested in electronics in 1968, and by 1980 I had gained much experience in the design and construction of analogue and digital circuitry especially in the area of process control systems.
I began the transition to software engineering during the 1980's, writing enhancements to an operating system and a BASIC compiler in Z80 assembler.
The transition to software engineering was complete by 1990. At this time I was working as a team leader in the Computer Support Services section of Telstra.
During the years spent in the IT industry I have gained considerable expertise in the following fields:
|Application Design||Data Modelling|
|Backup and Recovery Strategies||Decision Support Systems|
|Business Analysis||Oracle Database Administration|
|Data Analysis||Performance Tuning|
|Data conversions||Software Architecture Design|
Programming languages and tools in which I rate myself as being an expert include:
|Oracle Case Tools||Sql*Plus|
|Oracle import and export utilities||TOAD|
|SilverRun||unix shell scripts|
I also have skills in C, perl, HTML, java, awk and sed. Three of the major highlights of my career using the above skills and tools are:
I am willing to travel anywhere in Australia or the world. Although my business is based around contract work, a permanent position may be negotiable.
I hope that my services may be of use to you and your company at some time.
