Line of Business
|University of Richmond, Richmond, VA||2013-present||Computer Scientist: Higher education. Computer Science, Software Development||Linux/UNIX, Python 3, Oracle 11, Banner, OnBase, Amazon AWS|
In 2013 I designed, evangelized, wrote and integrated the replacement system for University of Richmond's authentication infrastructure. As of EOY 2014, over 4,000,000 authentication requests had been served with zero failures or compromises of the system. UR's systems include Banner, OnBase, Raiser's Edge, and over 300 servers for 4200 students, 600 faculty, and 300 non-teaching professional staff.
In 2014 I began the automation of the FERPA and HIPAA data feeds for our 30+ vendors. The new system allows ad hoc and scheduled operation, and provides internal stakeholders and our vendors with immediate reports of trouble and confirmation of success through email, Nagios, and phone. Each transfer is fully audited and audit-able, and the results are stored in a database for statistical analyses by the MicroStrategy data warehouse.
Completed in early 2017, Canøe performs 9,000 operations per week and assures correct transfer for 65 integrations.
