Employee: 2003 - Dec 2011
Contractor: Sep 1999 - 2003
I built a library of custom PHP classes to speed development, including a buffered, stack-based XHTML generator, a template system (before Smarty), an SQL helper with a common interface to a replaceable back-end (that is faster than PEAR DB), an XML generator and parser, custom session handler (before PHP sessions actually worked), an iterator for large datasets (prior to PHP 5 iterator, for speed and better resource handling), simple code profiling and debugging tools, along with many other common task handlers.
Using this library, I built custom web-based (LAMP) ecommerce system and supporting applications, including a template-based product manager, a customer account system and shopping cart with support for customized items, wholesale pricing, and promotions, a fulfillment system with support for blind-shipping, shop & compare feeds, Amazon integration, PPC tracking (before Analytics), and many, many others.
I have integrated various disparate systems, including our online web system with a Windows-based ERP. Other Windows applications I have written include a time clock scanner app integrated with web-based staff time manager, and warehouse systems to print pick tickets by location, customized blind-ship packing sheets, along with FedEx and UPS integration.
