Microsoft Technology Specialist

Skills

Summary

I have a passion for taking complex business problems and modeling them as elegant and simple software applications. I like to make use of open source libraries that reduce the amount of repetitive work which allows me to focus on the business problem at hand. Along the way I love helping people to learn more effective techniques of working by sharing my experience gained through the many projects I have been involved in, as well as the latest tools that I have been experimenting with. I choose to embrace design patterns that have been tried and proven since the days of the GoF. I believe implementing these patterns reduces pain and increases the stability and maintainability of the application.

RYA

Worked in a small team to support and maintain the RYA e-commerce website hosted through WSS 3.0 and MOSS 2007 platform. The E-commerce part of the website is built using commerce server 2007 Application Programming Interface, and commerce server client tools allows business users to manage the shop. By using SharePoint the business authors can dynamically update the content of the website pages on the fly and to fully manage the site. To bring the purchased products to the internal systems we utilize BizTalk server 2006, allowing all transactions to safely be transported and orchestrate business processes between the website and the internal data store.

The websites were separated in different layers to keep the front end, the server side and the data storage in objects of their own, thus achieving specialization of each component, simple to manage, less time consuming, uncomplicated to maintain and less prone to errors. I created a number of user controls in order to plug them in to the existing websites. I made the user controls generic to allow them to be configured and customizable so that they can adapt easily within the different sites.

skills used: .NET, C#, XHTML, IIS
