Assignment at Windstream

Contractor; Software Engineer III 8/2013 to present

  • Select technologies, design and build backend and frontend for a sales quoting application used by external sales users and quoting aggregators
  • Backend provided SOAP (JAX-WS) and REST (JAX-RS) web services using Jetty and CXF, implemented in Groovy
  • Frontend written in JavaScript, using AngularJS and Bootstrap with Grunt, Bower, and npm
  • Research, prototype, and implementation of migration of REST (Spring MVC) microservices from custom embedded Tomcat and Spring to Spring Boot 2 architecture. Developed Gradle plugin to share common configuration implementing CI in Windstream's specific environment. The services support the quoting applications and utilize Redis, Mongo, and Oracle databases.
  • Build microservices prototype using Spring Cloud and including Consul, Hystrix, Turbine and Ribbon. Research Zuul load balancing/API gateway, Docker, and Kubernetes.
  • Configure services and Apache on Linux development and production servers
  • Set up and maintain Jenkins continuous integration server on Linux and Sonatype Nexus 3 for proxying and publishing npm, NuGet and Maven artifacts. Assisted management of TeamCity CI jobs.
  • Rewrite JSF-based UI of the company's primary internal sales quoting application to use HTML5+AngularJS frontend with JSON backend implemented in JAX-RS+Groovy on Weblogic. The new backend also allowed replacing Selenium-based integration testing with direct API testing, reducing automated testing times from hours to minutes.
  • Part of a team to integrate that application with Salesforce, converting some existing code utilizing Oracle PL/SQL to SOAP/SOQL queries
  • Plan, architect, and implementation of a Groovy rules framework to replace proprietary usage of IBM JRules system. Manage and implement the actual migration with a few other developers.
