Project Manager and Software Architect

I have 20+ years experience in IT project management, software development and software architecture.

I have led several teams of software developers as project manager, quality manager and as team leader in different companies and different countries in sectors e.g. telecommunication, research & development, travel business, Internet marketing and Internet business, consultancy and services.

I have been responsible to collect the requirements of projects, applications and processes, design the databases and specify the final objects.

During my career I have accumulated a lot of experiences dealing with processes of any kind and the need to define the tools to manage them and collect the information.

Most of my tools have been written in VB, VBA, C++, C#, Java, PHP, Javascript using databases e.g. Informix, Postgres, Oracle and MySql.

I have organized all my experiences in courses which are not only a list of functions and methods but contain also my practical experiences and considerations about how to cope with the different situations and which solutions to suggest.
