Here is just a small sample of some of the projects I have contributed to in a major way.
I was primarily responsible for implementing the Open Source Enterprise Monitoring software
Zabbix. Aside from the standard sort of monitoring associated with Enterprises, Zabbix
is very maleable, and I was able to integrate with just about anything with a network address.
Making decisions based on data is crucial for any operation today, and Zabbix allows for the
collection of any just about any data you may need.

The University Information Technology Services (UITS) department is the
central technology department for the University of Arizona. In 2009 I
lead a team to re-design the website to bring it up to date both visually
and technologically. Read more for details of the project
UITS hires a lot of student employees each year. Keeping track of who's finished their
paperwork, gotten their picture taken, granted systems access, etc was becoming a big
headache. I led the effort to create a web application to streamline the process, and
make it clear who was on what step of the hiring process. The application has led to
a great reduction of people who 'fall through the cracks' when they're hired.

This web application was administrative back-end for the OSCR, UITS, and other websites.

This web application was built to help the nearly 40,000 students at the U of A migrate
from our in-house email system to Google Apps for Education, which we branded as CatMail.
This application was the user interface to an API developed by our infrastructure team.
Their API communicated with Google to create, activate, and manage accounts. The front
end that I wrote was used to guide students and staff through the opt-in process, and
ensure a great user experience.
This simple web based tool uses the location features of WebKit based browsers to
find nearby bus stops and link to arrival times.
