2003: Supply chain software at Sunhill Software, a spin-off of vCommerce which closed down after six months.
2004: Sales catalog for Nike, mutual fund management for Standard Insurance in Portland which turned out well, overall.
2005: Traffic platform for Roper in Phoenix as a favor to previous co-workers.
2005: I was part of a new DC branch which never opened. I was a project SME for legal dispute between Verizon, IBM and a vendor over a ringtone sales app. I did a Websphere migration at JP Morgan in NYC.
2006: Insurance software for Unigard Insurance in Seattle. This project turned out quite well, my best project in some ways.
2007: 90-day contract to add a Hibernate layer to billing app at Cingular in Bothell. Mostly a training exercise for two new developers.
2008: Health insurance software for Sheridan in Ft Lauderdale. Project was sabotaged by an employee and CTO eventually fired.
2010: Ecommerce for T-Mobile in Bothell. Lots of confusion on a month-to-month contract, project never got approved.
2011: Case management software at Aetna in Hartford, CT. My manager harassed me and was later fired but one of my more successful projects.
2012: Telecom billing software for Amdocs in Seattle, EHR platform on Websphere for Harris in Washington, DC. Amdocs laid off my team. The EHR project was a doomed government bid which shut down after I left.
2013: Cable tv control at Cablelabs in Denver, health analytics software at Gloo in Boulder. Cablelabs was the last gasp of an inept director. Gloo was too much about Jesus but I resolved their analytics dilemma anyway.
2014: Several weeks on a tokenized payment system in anonymized email. Never got paid, mostly about getting free consulting.
2015: SEO system for Staples in Seattle. I left after a year and project was shut down in 2017, a year longer than I predicted. :)
The most depressing aspect of my career is the level of fraud, bad faith, hidden agendas I encountered. I was pretty naive for the first ten years. Bad decision-making which made no sense at the time. You're either focused on delivering a product or you're focused on something else and something else came up too often.
I took much more risk than the average developer and it rarely paid off. I wasn't paranoid enough about people.
