Black Locust Software

Experienced SQL / .Net developer

  |   Auburn, IN

Overview

After graduating with a Bachelors of Science in computer science, I worked 9 years for other employers developing software for Microsoft platforms. I developed Windows applications, web applications, and back-end processes.

More importantly, I developed technology solutions that met business needs. In those years I learned to meet the business on its terms, not techno-babble terms.

For several years I also did work on a "moonlight" basis. That gave me experience with the micro-business where the day jobs gave me experience with medium...

Service Description

Daniel Wilson is the president of Black Locust Software, located in the Fort Wayne, IN area.

I provide several different services depending on customer needs.

For the customer who does not understand the technical aspects of his needs, I work to understand his business so I can propose and deliver a solution that works for him. In these cases I work hard to cut out the jargon. I should learn my customer's business. He should not have to learn mine.

While clear communication is important in any technical job, it is especially important here. Some guys may do the job more cheaply, but I will get this customer the solution he can understand without making him feel dumb for not knowing OOP, UML, 3NF and a thousand other software acronyms.

The other major business need I fill is as a specialist for technically advanced customers who have either a particular aspect of work they need to subcontract or simply have too much work. In these cases, I can move a little faster because the technical needs are already understood.

In all my work, quality is my highest concern. If I have to make a little less money to get the error-trapping in or be underbid because I would work out a better object model, that's OK. Turning out junk is not OK, and I won't do it.
