A Sun certified Java programmer and LOMA designated Fellow, Life Management Institution (FLMI), I am striving to apply well thought design strategies to large-scale software systems.
During my college years, I worked on campus for various application support and website maintanence positions. Then I worked as a consultant at Oshima Saito LLP when I was attending Fordham. I set up and administered their LAN, VPN, various accounting application systems, and most of all, programmed and lauched their first website. After graduation, I was hired by Westchester County to do J2EE based web development, where I enjoyed some of my firsts: first J2EE framework (Struts), , first ORM (Hibernate), first Crystal Java API integration, first iText Java API integration, first web content management system (RedDot). After fours years' of great time, I left the County and joined SBLI Mutual as a senior Java developer. I worked with company's offshore team on some large-scale 3-tier web applications and my job duties include architecting, coding, testing, and deployment. The most interesting technologies I learned are XML/XSLT based content management system, WebLogic clustering, Java AS/400 API, Google Web Tool(GWT) and AJAX. The most interesting domain knowledge I acquired are institutional investment, insurance product pricing and marketing, and legal implications of business activities. I recently joined IBI to do open source large scale enterprise search using Lucene and associated tools.
