Bill Curtis Consulting Services – Principal Developer / Owner
Created several applications, all of them based on “best practices” and “dynamic work-flows” to help clients become more efficient. I would work with clients and note any areas that needed enhancements and provide a solution that worked for them.
Linux (Ubuntu, CentOS, OS X and others), Apache, Mysql, PHP are my default tools.
I normally use PHP Storm and Sublime Text for coding.

Principal Developer – Director of Information Technology at Donovan Industries, Inc.
When I started at Donovan, there were 8 employees with a single dial-up AOL internet connection. When I left, they were a 21st century organization. Most everything automated with any person being able to remote in and do their job via a web browser. It was here at Donovan that I learned about the business world and began to think outside of the box and learn to program.
Every three months the executive team and I would have off-site meetings and I would be quizzed about different scenarios that might occur and asked to provide solutions. This was just before Facebook and Salesforce were the platforms that they are today.
I created a secure web based application called the “DSN” Donovan Sales Navigator. Created from scratch, using various technologies and libraries. Windows, Mac OS X, and linux were all used in this system. It was a real time dashboard of Inventory, Sales and Accounting. EDI was used for the larger customers, I created the ability for our system to import almost any kind of order format. I was able to remove almost every road block the company had in terms of inefficiencies.
Created a network from the ground up, spanning the globe from Tampa, FL, Savannah, GA, Columbo, Sri- Lanka and Rancho Cucamonga, California
Maintained access and security
Unix Administrator (IBM AIX, SCO, BSD), Mac OS X Server Administrator, Windows Server Administrator and Linux Administrator (Redhat, CentOS, Ubuntu)

Managed customer service department
Improved customer relations
I left Donovan Industries to start my own business to help other companies and Donovan became my first client.
Experience From 1994 – 2000
