Project Management

A Software Natural

Project management for me began in 2006. Considerable experience as a developer allows me to jump into any project as a lead or support. My goal is to deliver products, create accountability, and be the manager trusted by team members.

  • Estimation and resource allocation
  • Budget and reporting
  • Vendor Management
  • Reporting, accountability, and transparency

Platforms

Friends and/or Foes

Story, task, and sprint tools are key for all teams on a project. Software and services used for a project tend to each be a unique linchpin that warrants respect, understanding, and occasionally fear.

  • Jira, Confluence, Asana, Notion, ADO (Azure Dev-Ops), Linear, and others
  • AWS, Azure, Heroku, Digital Ocean
  • ELK Stack, New Relic, and other suites
  • Custom tooling, APIs, and diagnostics
