Active in the last 14 milliseconds!
Employed, but willing to consider an offer
My name is Doug Boude (rhymes with 'loud'), and I come to you with over 15 years of solid experience in the IT industry. My technical expertise is well rounded and honed, having done programming in several different languages, database design and administration, hardware troubleshooting/repair, LAN/web server administration, and spatial data management/manipulation. I'm also no stranger to project and personnel management.
I am a web application architect/developer by experience, nature, and preference, and excel as well in a team lead role or team member. My database design and SQL skills are excellent, having worked with nearly all of the mainstream 'flavors' out there, including Microsoft SQL, Sybase, MySQL, and Oracle.
I have excellent communication skills both written and oral, and am bilingual in the sense of being able to facilitate communication between techies and non-techies. I do also speak spanish fluently and some french, by the way, with a working knowledge of several other languages.
I would welcome the opportunity to elaborate on the experience and skills I can contribute to the success of your company, either via telephone or in person.
Thank you so very much for taking a few minutes to consider me.
