  • Designed and developed fully dynamic grid control with freeze pane and multi-row edit using ASP.NET data grid control in VB.NET to support new product planning organization's web-based build plan solver.
  • Designed and developed C# .NET thick client application to improve supply management and customer service-level for flash memory group.
  • Data Architect and Developer for MEIO. Provided technical leadership for multiple divisions while supplying supply network data and OLAP reporting solutions to drive optimized safety stock inventory targets at different stages of the supply chain.
  • Designed and Developed .NET and SAS applications as well as MicroStrategy reports to tie out corporate wide order management data between existing Sybase database and new Teradata database with new business rules and new data pulls from SAP environment.
  • Utilized MDX through COM interface to pull pre-summarized data directly from OLAP with drill down capability to live source data. This tool facilitated root cause analysis for several deltas between environments.
August 2002 - November 2003 Intel Corporation Folsom, CA
Technical Lead - Senior Validation Software Engineer
  • Project Management: Defined and assigned tasks, managed resource constraints, and tracked progress to schedule for a multi-platform graphics driver validation project.
  • Designed and developed tests for testing graphics drivers on Linux and Windows. Lead the team by developing test code that uses XML to abstract the test data from the test implementation. This reduces the requirement to re-compile tests and aids in rapid test development, and automation.
  • Using SOAP, and COM interface into a TLA711 Tektronix Logic Analyzer I developed a remote interface to COM API that provides the capability to capture static images over the network from an RGBA port. This facilitates testing of overlay and modes on a port that can't be displayed in a traditional manner.
  • Created pivot reporting mechanism to import LDRA code coverage reports into an OLAP CUBE database for rapid reporting on what tests exercise specific areas of code.
  • Created automated test suite for AC97 audio specification that tests the driver front end and then verifies the register settings match what was set using the application interface to the driver.
  • Developed C library for conversion between YUV and RGB pixel formats.
April 2000 - August 2002 Intel Corporation Folsom, CA
Senior Internet Software Engineer
  • Created OCT with a team of developers, OCT is Intel's Open Control Technology for centralizing and simplifying the management of systems in a data center.
  • Developed a security API, model and implementation for securing objects stored in a CIMOM (Common Information Model Object Manager).
  • Developed an OCT driver to integrate a CLIPS based JESS rules engine into OCT to provide automation of common tasks. The automation can be configured to automatically provision an operating system, install software packages, and content in a load balanced environment when load reaches a certain level, or a device goes offline.
  • Completed the driver for integrating the rules engine into OCT ahead of schedule. This allowed me to put together a memory based mini Linux operating system for PXE booting. The mini Linux OS provided the capability of provisioning the new system with an OS, as well as provide status of the available device into the OCT framework. There is a patent pending for this technology.
  • Developed a Java interface for creation of CLIPS rules, the interface converts the GUI based rule definitions into CLIPS.
