I have a Bachelor's degree in Computer Information Systems and have been programming in many languages for over 26 years in the healthcare industry. Whether you are looking to come up to speed with these languages as a beginner or trying to build something more advanced and you just need a little help debugging a project, I can help. As one of the three Senior Solutions Consultants responsible for the design of Kaiser Permanente's claims-processing platform, I was also responsible for all... [more]
I am adept at Unix/Linus shell scripting. If you need help with regular expressions, basic commands, piping and redirecting output, awk scripting, identity and access management concepts, process monitoring, and other Linux topics, I can help. I have been automating tasks in Unix AIX and Linux environments for over 20 years and can help you with homework assignments or to be more efficient at work.
I have built scores of small and large applications in Microsoft Access utilizing most (if not all) of the functions and features Access has to offer. One example of a large database I created in Microsoft Access was called ClaimCreator. This application allowed one-click creation of mocked up claims for Kaiser Permanente eliminating the need to use live membership data containing PHI. This single application made use of linked tables against Oracle, read and created text files, applied advanced parsing routines to text files, and stored many complex profile settings that users could reuse in the future to create large sets of regression test claims. I have also built many applications that made advanced use of the reporting features such as mail merge routines for a lawyers office, a judgement recovery business, a vascular surgery registry and many others. Whether you are looking to utilize the menu-driven capabilities of Microsoft Access, or wish to develop more advanced modules using event driven and/or object oriented programming, I can explain these concepts to anyone that wants to learn.
