http://www.asset-management.com

Asset-Management.com is an asset management system for 'high net worth' individuals. This is essentially a personal accounting system and financial portal for individuals and portfolio managers, and was written in Java making extensive use of servlets and JSPs. I was particularly involved with the security aspect of the project, in particular the integration of our java code with the ACE/Server SecurID system, in addition to configuration of firewalls and hardening the machines for internet use. As part of this project I was also involved with the design and development of a generic application framework.

Credittrade

http://www.credittrade.com

I led the development of Credittrade (www.credittrade.com), an online brokerage for the credit derivatives market. This system allows brokers and traders to close various types of trades over the web and has a number of messaging features. It was written mainly in Perl, using Apache/mod_perl in conjunction with a Sybase database deployed on a Linux box. I was deeply involved in the design and development of every part of the system, and also configuration of the hardware and associated security concerns. After the first release of the code I was also the system administrator for the site.
