Worked remotely to train my replacement for Analyst/Programmer III and secondary, teaching them the intricacies of the CoTS product I had managed. Lead training sessions twice or more a week while adding technical details on the in-house MediaWiki product that I set up for end-user documentation.

Developed a number of web products including a web-based interface on top of Public Safety’s legacy data store using ASP.MVC 4 and Entity Framework 6, as well as a Team Project List to be used as a high-level complement to Asana and Subversion.

Also developed and supported a C# interface to synchronize person records from the Alaska Public Safety Information Network (APSIN) to the ARMS application.

Assisted with Niche Technology in developing the capability for their application to support Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) statistics that are submitted to the FBI on an annual basis for reporting. This involved the use of both T-SQL for working on the back-end report and a Python/HTML/JavaScript solution to provide a human readable interface for the statistics.
