Worked with a team to support back office software solutions for MLM companies. Helped to re-architect the base system to allow speedy turn-around for new clients as they come online.

Stores Online (Crexendo Inc.) Software Eng II - Orem, UT - 2011 - 2011

Worked with Stores Online for a few months developing in Java to build server components and web-based interfaces for the customers. During this time I gained skill in development with Oracle Databases and database integration with the Java Server that is sort of a home-brew style Web Server which is similar from an API standpoint to Java Swing (Component Driven).

To compare the framework used at Stores Online to any other Web based framework it most resembles Vaadin except the framework had its own server. We were not writing servlets.
