Making sense of random movements

Steven Barnett

South View Solutions - Senior Developer

Sep 2012 to Feb 2013.

Activities

South View Solutions have two development streams, dealing with mobile applications for the housing associations and with integration products providing low cost add-on tools for the back office systems (financial and job management) used in those housing associations. At the time I joined there was no support for the integration products and I was to pick up, support and enhance those products leaving the rest of the team to concentrate on mobile.

Achievements

  • Resurrected the broken Maintenance Job Scheduling system (C#/WPF/WCF), fixed it and released to three customers who had been seeking an alternative product.
  • Produced a prototype Purchase Order system (C#/Winforms) in three weeks which subsequently led to an order from the customer for the full product.
  • Introduced Resharper which led to faster bug resolution and improved code quality.
  • Provided guidance in the use of SubVersion, streamlining the release process.
  • Designed and developed (C#) a file processing automation system allowing the user to create C# based macros rather than keep deploying the application for every new file type.
  • Analysed and re-wrote the VB6 invoice matching system in C#/WPF.
  • Produced training plans for the junior developers.
