If you are struggling with Algebra and would like some help getting past some roadblocks from someone with a degree in Math who took first and second place in the math competitions at his university, studied computers science at Stanford, and worked for organizations like NASA, Oracle, and IBM, I would be happy to help.
My hope and belief is that many of my students will get over their fear, catch some of the concepts they are missing, and blow past anything I have done and pass me up!
I'm Daniel J. D. I received my BA in Mathematics in 1986 with a minor in Physics at California State University, Fresno and studied Computer Science at the graduate level at Stanford Universe in the 1990's. During my undergraduate studies at Fresno State, I competed in the math competition two years taking first place one year and second place the other year and beating out engineering, physics, math and computer science students.
I have worked in highly technical roles at NASA, Ingres, Oracle, and PeopleSoft and built an IT Department as a Director of Operations and IT and Chief Systems Architect for a successful Internet startup company.
Developed several LAMP Stack website environments. Explored several technologies including Docker, Vagrant, Virtualbox, Apache, Nginx, MySQL, PHP, various MVC frameworks, Wordpress, Drupal, Tikiwiki, graphics, video, and sound editing, FastCGI, cacheing at various levels, and dabbled with the MEAN stack and Ruby on Rails.
Built, maintained, updated, and upgraded Epic environments and ancillary servers. Served as secondary Clarity ETL Administrator. Trained new people in DataCourier and Chronicles imports. Helped set up CareEverywhere linking our hospital system to other hospital systems around the nation. Mentored others in Unix administration and scripting.
Architected a comprehensive system for pharmacy encounters for health plans in several states in PL/SQL and Perl. Mentored others in Perl programming. Performed data mining for missing data and provided tracking of records sent, errors encountered, and errors corrected. Helped mentor Unix system administrators.
Administered production PeopleSoft installations for large organizations. Performed major upgrades and minor updates of production, development, and test environments. Performed troubleshooting, performance analysis, and support of environments on Oracle and SqlServer and associated application servers and web servers.
I built the Corporate IT Infrastructure team and helped build the Support and QA teams as the company grew from 11 employees to 85 employees. Managed the network, database, and systems administration for internal and external networks. Gradually worked from a technical role to a senior management role.
Served in a lead technical support role before taking on a software architect role developing an automated remote diagnostics system based on Motive and liinking it to Vantive--the CRM solution PeopleSoft was using at the time. Provided formal training to PeopleSoft employees and presented the product at the PeopleSoft show in New Orleans.
Served as a senior Unix systems administrator in Production. Served on Oracle's Security Response Team. Moved to a new role to help build the Enterprise Systems Center, it's data center, and helped populate it with large scale systems appropriate for research in database performance and reliability by a world-class set of systems and database experts.
Installed and managed approximately 80 Ingres databases on approximately 40 Unix platforms from small PC's to Cray, Convex, and Amdahl supercomputers. Trained other analysts in installation, testing, and tightening of quality of product installation packages. Provided desktop support.
On contract with Recom, I developed a project plan for migrating NASA's Information Sciences Division from VMS to a network of Unix systems. Managed VMS and Unix systems and networking.
