Lead Software Developer at Pension Protection Fund
I am responsible for project delivery in the capacity of a Lead Software Developer. I have delivered two major projects Levy 1112 and NLF alongwith smaller projects within the SharePoint space. Levy 1112 incorporated periodic changes as per policy to an existing Desktop application that calculates Levy based on pension scheme assets and liabilities. This spanned across 6 months delivered in 6 Sprints including 2 live releases and a hardening sprint. The 'New Levy Framework' or NLF invloved re-design and development of the main core business process over 9 Sprints, each 3-5 weeks in duration.After the initial 3 Sprints we went Live after each sprint. The TFS Agile template was used for managing the Sprints and reporting on all the mertics . Invested heavily in Continuous Integration and TDD so as to increase test coverage both at unit and Integration level. Also faciliated integration of QA automation with the CI Builds. This seriously helped in getting to DONE!DONE! faster. The main Levy application was a .NET based solution having a Win Forms front end and using WCF,ORM,Windows Services hosted across servers for core services. This was integrated with third party system like Dun and Bradstreet for Insolvency data and Thomson Reuters for daily Market Index data. Scheme Valuation data was roll forwarded based on Market index(Basis) data and this data was fed through a calculation engine that calculated Levy based on scheme assets and valuations. The system then generated invoices based on this. Implementation of Scrum was key to the success of the project in delivering on time and quality.I have received two performance related appraisals during my two years as a result of the success of these projects
