OpenEdge Progress Developer

Age : 45

Just a little bit about me…

I am Senior Developer with Pace IT (UK) having previously worked with Advanced on Progress-OpenEdge products like OpenPeople & OpenAccounts starting way back in 1995.

With 24 years experience as a developer I’ve been involved through the full gambit of the software development life cycle.  From system design through to customer support, customer & staff training and everything in-between.

I enjoy making things work!  Debugging and problem solving are probably my favourite bits, and I also love meeting new folks and getting to know their issues so to help them.  I’m pretty comfortable with both in-house team communication and front line customer facing support.

Among the bits & bobs of Progress/OpenEdge experience I have are:

  • Progress OpenEdge V6-11
  • ADM1 / ADM2
  • Smart Objects
  • WebSpeed / AppServer
  • Windows / Unix / Linux / Mac
  • SQL Server
  • Chui / Gui
  • Web Services – Soap & Rest

Among a plethora of other non Progress/OpenEdge experience:

  • Laravel Framework / PHP
  • API development
  • Cloud Computing (Amazon AWS, MS Azure, Digital Ocean)
  • Vagrant
  • Docker
  • WordPress / WooCommerce / Magento
  • WordPress plugin development
  • MySQL
  • HTML / CSS / Bootstrap / Sass / etc…
  • SEO

Bits I’m currently learning:

  • Mobile App Development
  • Nativescript
  • Vue.js
