Chris Cowden Software engineer/consultant
Currently supporting grocery retailer in Los Angeles on Base24-POS and Winpay payment processing.
Enjoy working "green" from my Omaha location, going out to LA periodically - and it is effective.
Experienced in Tandem(HP Non-Stop), SQL, transaction processing, requester-server, EFT. I like working with stakeholders, refining ambiguous requirements into a workable project, working with different nationalities and cultures, nurturing newbies, coaxing project owners. Whatever it takes to get'er done.
Some adapted Agile techniques I have used successfully with business projects where there isn't a software deliverable. Fascinating opportunities for projects where ambiguous requirements and ineffective communications are an issue.
I enjoy traveling , my wife enjoys me coming home, we both enjoy one-day rides or thousand mile trips on our big 1500cc highway bike. My outdoor enthusiams of hunting, fishing, and bike riding are, like most of us, limited by working alot. Although I do find time for cooking and building projects like decks(both semi-skilled).
Will respond to email, although there may be occasional delays of a couple days based workload that week.
Footnote: CSM Instructor Michael James from Danube was our CSM class instructor, he is excellent!
