American Honda

After running my own businesses for greater than a decade I was presented with an opportunity to follow my professional programmer dreams. During the interview I was able to bring a portable computer and show off some of the coding and solutions that I have spent the last 10 years doing. Doing a real demo with a real technical professional must have made a difference as I was offered the opportunity on the spot.

While at American Honda I worked on the DCS (Dealership Communications System). This is the system that all United States Honda dealers use for customer and parts information exchange with the corporation.

My involvement with the project was the coding of WinForms Visual Basic 4 forms. The business analyst defined detailed mockups that provided the requirements necessary. I was tasked with providing alternative coding techniques to prevent user interactions with items that are to be view only and mentoring other developers in techniques to increase their productivity.
