myprimetime.com - MyPrimeTime,Inc. (August 1999 - September 2000) San Francisco, California
Web System Operator (hybrid of HTML/XML coding, Perl scripting, UNIX Systems Administration/Web Mastering), NT Systems Administrator/Win32 Technical Lead, Associate UNIX Systems Administrator, Associate Network Engineer - As employee number 14 and one of the first technical people on board, I operated in numerous roles during the initial startup phase. I built and configured our publishing systems Sun E-450, inclusive of installing and configuring two raid-5 arrays (five 9GB SCSI cheetahs each) and 2 OS drives. After the box was built I installed our web-publishing system then known as futuretense, which involved the installation and configuration of Netscape Enterprise Web Server, Netscape Application Server, and Oracle 8.0.5. I built the initial network in tandem with our network consultants and finally settled more or less into the task I was hired to do: build a dynamic database-driven site. The web development involved deploying and customizing Perl/CGI scripts and authoring HTML (3.2 then 4.0 on redesign), XML & JavaScript within the publishing system. The XML usage in the publishing system is similar to XHTML with some if/else logic and SQL added in.
