Database Administration Application Development
Almaden Research Center, San Jose, CA, USA



I review, analyze and modify systems, including encoding, testing, debugging and installing to support multiple application systems across a diverse landscape of customers. I consult with users to identify current operating procedures and to clarify program objectives. I write technical documentation to describe program development, logic, coding and corrections.

My skills include programming, automation, autonomics and general system administration, but my heart belongs to databases.

Big databases.

Actually, databases of all sizes and ages. I prefer to come in early and set things up to grow to the billions of rows that everyone envisions, but with performance and disaster recovery always on the front burner. I can also come into a project that already has traction, but needs tuning and deliver a robust and scalable solution.
