Tim's most recent accomplishments

Worked with a team to completely re-write SchoolLogic's legacy CSV to VFP conversion suite to
output databases in MSSQL format. Responsible for design and testing of the application.

Participated as the lead analyst for a root-cause analysis of critical performance issue in for legacy
Windows software used by the Calgary Board of Education. 32-bit VFP .COM objects having threads
that create locks and then die without releasing on 64-bit Windows which destroyed data stored the
session state. A custom session manager was employed to mitigate this for Calgary Board of
Education. Recommended architecture changes as well as changes to stored procedures that
successfully resolved a number of issues.

Championed the use of RMM software as a proactive approach to server administration - as


opposed to periodic checkups and waiting for users to report server crashes before responding.

Lead team member for Parkland School District's conversion from FoxPro database and legacy
software to SQL 2008 R2 database. Responsible for every step of the process including planning,
standardized data mapping documents, doing the actual conversion, implementation and testing.
Did on-site reviews of architecture and met personally with the IT department at for every stage of
the project. Was also responsible for on-going maintenance using N-Central RMM software.

Extensive testing on SQL Server 2008 R2 servers, architecture, stored procedures, and application
logic to address performance issues. Implemented changes to resolve issues.

Implemented N-Central RMM software across all of SchoolLogic's hosted and remote clients with a
service contract, as a proactive approach to maintenance.

Maintained successful relationships with system users and owners
