As a junior programmer I was responsible for the development new Visual Basic applications for the department. Specifically worked on an imaging software that would automate the serialization of documents being transferred from physical storage to virtual storage via imaging software and optical disk arrays. Helped design and code a Visual Basic application to scan in bulk many pages with several cover sheets per group that contained bar codes. I was responsible for helping to code the bar code reader classes and the database connectivity classes of theapplication. The application was used for two years while we awaited new software in development at the time to shift workflow from paper to online. While waiting for the new application called Gemini, this application allowed us to use the imaging storage systems well before the entire n-tier application was completed. Was also responsible for developing Crystal Reports for local production managers. Also built many SQL Server stored procedures for other analysts in the department to aid in their job duties. Was also given permission to work on a personal project of my own to help the department’s data collection team. I designed and wrote an ASP – data driven website that could utilize the data our department collected to help the data collections team to more efficiently look up satellite television providers like DirecTV and Dish Network to view their channel line-ups. This saved approximately 40% of an analysts processing time per call which improved overall efficiency of our department.
