Personal

Deployd

Uses the Nuget protocol to cleverly install and configure websites, windows services and any other Nuget package.

Deployment 'hooks' allow for custom operations during pre- and post- install phases.

Operations Monitor Service
2013

Windows service with an embedded Web UI which:

  • Allows the customer service team to locate a specific error across the entire JustGiving server farm, based on a caller's name, email or their error reference
  • Allows the development team to then debug the specific problem and produce a fix within minutes
  • Provides real-time statistics of all errors across the server farm for the operations team to monitor
  • Charts historic statistics of errors across the server farm

Funds Management System
2012-2013

Set of Windows services which:

  • Propagates changes to domain entity data to various JustGiving datacentres
  • Reconciles settlement data provided by payment gateways and updates corresponding JustGiving payment records

Release Process
2011-present

Implemented a complete end-to-end release process:

  • Continuous integration with tests using TeamCity and MsBuild
  • Automated deployment process - time taking to release to all servers reduced from 1-2 days to less than 1 hour
  • Reduced the risk of a failed release from more than 50% to 0%
  • Increased the predictability of a release by implementing new development and testing guidelines

CMS Delivery
2012

Provided a content management system for JustGiving:

  • Performed a detailed cost-benefit analysis of various CMS products
  • Installed and configured Microsoft's Orchard CMS system
  • Trained developers and marketing team members in the use of the CMS
  • Marketing team are now completely self-sufficient and can update website copy without delay

Search
2011

In 2011 I replaced the existing Microsoft SQL Full-Text search with a Lucene.Net implementation. Search is now way better.

Smart Automobile

Smart Cover Creator
2012

In 2012 I created a web service for car manufacturer Smart Automobile which creates a mosaic image from the images stored in a user's Facebook photo feed. The service makes use of several methods to increase performance such as threading and manipulating bitmap data using unmanaged code. Generating a mosaic image from hundreds of input images takes only a few seconds.
