PORTFOLIO / PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

ColdFusion 9 Developer | State Of Idaho | Boise, ID. - July 2011 - Present

ColdFusion 8 Developer | Cayuse Technologies | Pendleton, OR. - April 2009 - December 2010
  • Programming ColdFusion 8 applications for various clients throughout the United States using mostly CF8 & Oracle 11g. All of these clients have non-disclosure agreements. I mostly work on enhancing ColdFusion applications and sometimes creating new applications. I maintain documentation as needed based on user requirements.

ColdFusion MX7 Programmer | Travel Solutions | Columbus, OH. - December 2007 ­ April 2009
  • I wrote secure ColdFusion MX7 (SQL 2005) applications for the client portal. We developed and used mostly ColdFusion Components (CFCs) to ensure security and keep performance at a high level. It was more necessary when I would have to process large files through single thread processing. I included an example project below.

    ColdFusion MX 7 - Project Example

    Project Overview
    : The client would like to maintain their users that they allow into the portal by submitting an updated encrypted text file on a daily (or weekly) basis. This was necessary in case someone was no longer with the company and needed to be blocked from accessing the portal.
    Project Solution: This (four part) automated process logs, reports, sends emails; and, archives all processes for tracking purposes. This process can process large files using single thread processing without any timeout error and the application will call itself until complete on each 100 lines of processing. This application is dynamic within our client portal. Which means drag and drop my application into any folder; and, it works. I had to be brief; but, here are the processes...

    ColdFusion MX7 Applications

    Process A was to retrieve (via FTP) the encrypted text file, archive the file, and then delete the remote file. If failure, email administration.
    Process B was if the new local encrypted text file exists, decrypt the file for processing; and, then re-encrypt the file (with our encryption stamp) to send to our sister company via FTP. The decryption process is a stand alone process called by the SQL Scheduler.
    Process C was to process the file at 100 lines per thread. This application calls itself until complete. Once the first 100 lines were processed, I passed the variables through the URL to recall the application until the end of the file is reached. Once fully processed, the application writes a report (size of file, process time start to end, profiles updated, profiles deleted, new, etc...), emails the client with the report details, deletes the file (no decrypted information stored on our server); and writes a log.
    Process D was to send the new file (re-encrypted by process B) to our sister company via FTP; and, write a log.
