Dallas, Texas greggoodwin@live.com

I have over 20 years of experience with full stack web and windows application development. I specialize in C# and the .net framework, both front and back end. Alone or with a team I learn, grow and adapt quickly, I truly love what I do. Being able to say that and mean it has made me the happiest man alive.

Merrill Corporation

Responsibilities included working on existing software as well as new product development. Provided maintenance and bug fixes to existing Windows Form applications written in Visual Basic which were used within the legal industry to manage cases as well as OCR important documents for digital storage. Worked with a small team to move these existing technologies to a web based platform using ASP.Net and VB.Net. We used Oracle as the data framework and BizTalk to manage client server communication. As a result, we successfully created one of the first online browser based OCR processes in the legal industry.

Interests

Apart from being a software developer, I enjoy getting out, spending time with friends and family. I have taken up boxing and kickboxing as a way to stay in shape and really love my gym. I am a sports fan and love the great outdoors. Nothing better than a weekend camping by a lake or catching a game.

When hanging out at home, I follow a number of sci-fi and fantasy genre movies and television shows, I am a gamer and enjoy social competitive gaming with friends. I spend a large amount of my free time exploring the latest technology advancements in the software development world.
