TEKsystems for Kohl’s Department Stores, Menomonee Falls, WI (9/2014 – 6/2015)
As part of a small project team, rewrote Point-of-Sale (POS) interface to new VeriFone PIN Pad software in order to significantly reduce the potential for credit and debit cards from being compromised though use of tokenization (C# including asynchronous calls, C++, .NET, WWF, MVVM, TFS, XAML).
• Developed new features to pair PIN Pads to POS registers including connect, disconnect, test, and startup.
• Implemented many void (current and post transaction), tendering, and PIN Pad API and reliability related changes.
DWD Consulting, LLC (7/2010 to 9/2014)
Developed extensive stock trading and analysis software using Visual Studio 2010 (C#, .NET, WPF, SQL Server; SVN) and Trade Station development tools.
Added the following enhancements to an open source code project:
• Generate price bars and indicator values for multiple time periods from 15 sec to 1 month (vs. 1 time period up to an hour) and maintain a data container class for the data.
• Ability to run multiple simulations consecutively using code almost identical to real-time or paper trading modes via use of 5 second or two minute price bars.
• Storage and retrieval of historical price bar and Support/Resistance level data into/from a SQL Server 2008 database.
• Many additional standard and custom indicators including Fibonacci levels, exponential moving average, MACD, stochastics, candlestick patterns, and indicator divergences along with generation of indicator reports.
• Support for multiple accounts, manual orders and support/resistance and Fibonacci level based trading algorithms.
• Option to use Trade Station price bar data rather than Interactive Brokers data to support better data accuracy, data match with Trade Station charts, flexibility (e.g., tick data vs. 5 second minimum) and reduced data costs.
