Eyede Solutions
Jan 2013 - Jan 2022 (9 years)
Development Lead/Software Architect
Team lead, architect and software engineer.

I'm a full stack software developer and architect responsible for leading in-house software development team at Eyede, working predominantly with Microsoft technologies on complex web based applications.

Currently working as architect and principal developer on a next generation web application using Microsoft's Blazor Web Assembly application framework, running on .Net 6. This project is a replacement for a legacy Asp.Net MVC monolith application. The architecture I'm implementing for this project is based on a microservices back end, with the Blazor WASM application framework being used to build a SPA web client. I have designed and implemented the UI using Github's Primer CSS framework, and the back end services leverage CQRS and Event Sourcing patterns, and are hosted on Azure, using Azure Kubernetes Service and Azure App Services.

One element of this project that is already in production is a "trip processing" component, which has resulted in throughput increases of 600% compared to the legacy product.

I oversaw and collaborated with the other senior developers in building a next generation multi tier web application architecture using Angular, TypeScript, JavaScript, HTML 5 and CSS 3, backed with WebAPI components using ASP.Net Core, Entity Framework Core and SQL Server.

I configured and managed Eyede's internal TFS server deployment. I also developed the team's DevOps processes and procedures, using TFS, Team Build and Octopus Deploy.

I migrated Eyede's internal TFS based DevOps tooling to Visual Studio Online (now Azure DevOps), with Git for version control, and leveraging Azure DevOps pipelines for build and deployment.
