Here are a few examples of some of the professional web application development
projects I have been involved with.



Employer: City of Raleigh, North Carolina

Web Site: www.raleighnc.gov

Technologies: Plumtree Portal, Microsoft ASP.NET, C#.NET, SQL Server 2000

Functional Role(s): Project Manager, Web Architect, Lead Developer

Project Overview:
When I accepted the Web Architect position with the City of Raleigh, NC the public portal site had already been built and live for the better part of a year. Unfortunately, both the site and some of the backend systems were suffering from some performance and reliability issues. A significant amount of effort was put into eliminating these issues and improving the overall system.

Throughout my tenure with the City of Raleigh, quite a bit of new functionality was added
to the system. Some of these new additions and improvements included the Hot Topics section, News and Alert item RSS feed systems, and special department-specific content sections and pages.


Highwoods Properties
Employer: WebBASIX, Inc.

Client: Highwoods Properties

Web Site: www.highwoods.com

Go Live: September 2005

Technologies: Microsoft ASP.NET, C#.NET, SQL Server 2000

Functional Role(s): Project Manager, Technical Architect, Lead Developer, and Database Designer

Project Overview:
Selected by client to redesign the backend architecture and code base of existing
national corporate real estate web site. Original web application was built
utilizing Java, JSP, PostgreSQL, and Red Hat Linux technologies.
This site allows users to browse and search a database of the client’s various
properties, provides links to other customer self-service systems, and displays
information about the organization and available career opportunities.
The decision was made to redesign and rebuild the web application, database, and
other associated sub-systems and utilities using Microsoft technologies. This
allowed the existing client staff to take over responsibility for ongoing support
and maintenance of the web site after initial implementation. The previously
existing graphic and style elements were reused for this effort.
During this project, I took on the roles of Technical Architect, Project Manager,
Lead Developer, and Database Designer. The end result was a more efficient,
flexible, and maintainable web application and infrastructure.

Project Overview:
This high-end ski equipment and fine apparel retailer was looking for some
help completely redesigning their eCommerce website – both the graphic
elements and the backend infrastructure. They requested a significant number
of new features and real-time integration with their existing inventory

After the initial rollout of the new web solution, online order revenue
increased by approximately 40% during the first 12 months.
My functional roles for this project were Project Manager, Technical Architect,

C#.NET, and SQL Server 2000 technologies running on a Windows 2003 Server platform.
