While I was working as a full-time developer for an advertisement and marketing company. They had their own basement crack team of IT and software professionals that I had a great time working with. I learned the ins-and-outs of several industries I had no prior knowledge of, mainly shipping & selling lumber with e-commerce. Some of the things I did with it:

  • Wrote improvements and extensions to the AbleCommerce proprietary e-commerce platform that ran on Net 4.0 and C#. I worked on anything regarding shipping.
  • Implemented LTL freight shipping methods that ran on 3rd party APIs specific to each carrier. Wrote split shipping algorithms that automatically generated shipments and pallets for large orders.
  • Extensive code analysis and refactoring were required to reduce the existing application’s technical debt, there were alot of existing shipping methods that were worked on in the past that needed update.
  • Many diverse web services were in use. This required examination of all the custom documentation for each provider’s shipping method API.
