Lead Powerbuilder Architect And Instructor Resume

SUMMARY:

  • In over 10 years in the software industry I have performed in roles as diverse as instructor - training developers and sales force-, analyst/developer -delivering solutions to customers’ information needs-, and as a marketing person -evangelizing technology.
  • I was involved with the growth of PowerBuilder in the software market almost from its beginning, and I have hands-on experience in versions 2 through 6 and 12.
  • This vast spectrum of experiences taught me to appreciate the software industry from many different angles.
  • As a consultant, not only did I have to deliver solutions to clients' needs, but as a PB specialist, I always had to see the whole picture of systems, trying to recommend the best way to use PB.
  • Another role that deserves special mention is the marketing and evangelizing of software products.
  • Under this hat, I had the opportunity to appreciate the importance of effectively broadcasting technical information to customers, developers, and sales force.
  • This role put me in contact with another exciting activity, the development of proofs of concept.
  • This rapid development of prototypes to help customers visualize the solution to their business needs was one of the most challenging and exciting jobs I had to do.
  • Most recently, I have been continuing my growth on the Object Oriented paradigm by working with Java, Javascript under the MVC and J2EE architecture.
