Employer Project Experience

Below are a few project examples that I have detailed my experiences.

Unity IDE Virtual Reality

The Commons XR [https://thecommonsxr.com/]

Part of a software development team that developed a new immersive educational platform specifically designed to conduct and administer portions of classes in VR, enabling educators to see in real-time how well their students are engaging in a lesson, identifying at-risk students while maintaining student data securely.

  • C# .Net Development in Unity, Visual Studio, and Unity Collab
  • Multiplayer Networking and Interactions, Photon, Unity Libraries, User Interface Menus

Windows Application for Asset Management

I worked with a utility client where I first independently gathered requirements from the client, designed, developed a working prototype C# .NET Windows 7 compatible application (Client’s Requirement) using ADO.NET for MS Access databases.

After the client was satisfied with the user interface and the team implemented the backend datastore, I switched over the production-ready application to use ORACLE database libraries (the ORACLE system was being installed at the time of development).

The windows application had a snazzy client logo graphic that animated (I made with simple graphics and animation in code) and a user interface to view utility equipment in the database, search bar with many options, navigation bar, and background logging of environment, time, username, error logging, activities logging, etc. The application runs on the electric grid operator’s windows 7 computers 24/7 for daily use.
