Blue Ridge Numerics 2005
I worked for 2 months as a Software Contractor... analyzing, documenting and porting their CFdesign product from Visual Basic .Net
to UNIX Solaris:SunOS, HP:HP_UX, and IBM:AIX “target” operating systems.
That effort involved my determining what the process was and creating "BASH" shell scripts
to "Make"; compile, build, and integrate the pieces of in-house and 3rd-party software... and produce the various UNIX versions of the CFdesign product.
I created processes, guidelines, and documentation which did not previously exist.
Biophile, Inc. /
I worked from May 2003 to Oct 2004 for Biophile ... until it was taken over by Tekcel which, after a few months, did a 30% reduction-in-force.
My work at Biophile involved analysis and improvement of the mechanical and software operations of the automated minus-80degreeC Biotechnical vial storage system and especially its robotics. The robotics initially used an Adept robot arm to move rack and individual vials. The robotics were changed to Yamaha for better software integration and performance. I designed and implemented new features into the Biophile Storage Unit (BSU) application software using Visual Basic 6. My work also included analyzing and writing code for Programmable Logic Controller (PLC), Smart Motors, and databases.
I also implemented finger print recognition for user access to the "touch screen" interface of the Biophile product.
I was instrumental in the installation of Biophile systems at Merck ( Seattle, WA) , Eli Lilly (Indianapolis, IN), and The Institute for Genomic Research (Rockville, MD)
