PHP

I began using PHP in 2005 and it immediately became my language of choice. I was very impressed with the speed and capabilities that C Language lacked, the assortment of build-in functions for dealing with arrays, databases, files, etc. PHP increased my productivity considerably and was used to write batch processes, web pages and application/server monitoring tools before retirement.
Since taking early retirement, I've had time to further improve my expertise in this impressive programming language.

MySQL

MySql has been my database of choice since 2005. I have managed tables with millions of records and access time for my applications have always been instantaneous. My skills include installation, database design, tuning, support and software development using MySql.

Linux/Unix

My application development has been on Linux/Unix servers since 1992. I am proficient as a user, shell programmer, software developer, managing operating system (OS) updates, troubleshooting OS problems, permissions and user management. I also have experience with Linux systems administration, including Apache configuration.

BASH/SH/CSH/BSH

Linux/Unix shell scripting has been a key part of my job since 1992. I have used these shells, along with Unix/Linux commands to build/enhance the development and support of my applications.

LAMP Development

Linux/Unix shell scripting has been a key part of my job since 1992. I have used these shells, along with Unix/Linux commands to build/enhance the development and support of my applications.

AJAX

AJAX allows web page data to change without reloading the web page using JavaScript. I am experienced in AJAX development.

Data Crunching

Many of my assignments in my previous job including culling down massive amounts of data into useful summary data and presenting it in report, web, spreadsheet or other forms. This challenging work is something that I enjoy very much an look forward to having opportunities to do more of this type work.

C Language

From 1993 until 2005 my development work was done using C Language. Since 2005, the applications I supported were mostly written in C. I have strong skills and experience with C.

Oracle

The applications I wrote and supported from 2002 - 2012 used Oracle. My experience with Oracle is as an application developer. We worked with our DBA staff for installation and tuning of the databases and to maximize performance.

AppDynamics

I worked with AppDynamics software for my last year before retirement. I managed AppDynamics integration with the application, user access, provided performance analysis to the developers and trained developers to use the application and database performance tools.

Web Development

I would have rated myself "very high" had I maintained my knowledge of SEO (Search Engine Optimization). It has been a few years since I've dealt with SEO issues and I believe there have been some recent changes.

JavaScript

I have used JavaScript at times in my web development. I do not use it to edit input, since that should be done on the servers side, but it is an effective tool for add functionality of the web page and is required by AJAX.

Apache

I have experience installing and configuring Apache/Apache2. I currently have a virtual server hosting multiple sites via the Apache configuration.
