Where do I or have I used these programs?

CMS: WordPress, Drupal, Dreamweaver,  Joomla

 WordPress, install via cpanel and manually via FTP. Configure basic settings, install theme and plugins. Troubleshoot conflicts and custom changes to HTML, CSS, JavaScript and PHP researching for additional information as needed. Total current number of sites is 14 with subdomains. I personally use Infinite WordPress to manage updates, themes, plugins and backups.
 

Prior to using WP for all of the sites I used Joomla or Drupal as well as hand coding in HTML CSS and using Dreamweaver for development.

Programming Languages: HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Perl, VisualBasic.NET, BASIC A

 Amusingly my skills in code started as a child learning Basic A. My summer was spent typing and debugging programs that I found in books and magazines for my old TI-99 4A. This translated well to HTML, CSS, Perl and I didn’t realize it until I took a Visual Basic.net class. From what my instructor said all of the business major students failed the class at least once but he was delighted that I wanted more advanced information. That class has proven to be one of the many I’ve used in my professional life as it is the language used to build and edit advanced macros in MS Office.

Databases: MMIS, DS3, Citrix, Access, Enterprise, COGNOS, MYSQL, PHPMyAdmin, CPanel

 Citrix was a database that was used to track various types of data for the clients that Nine Star served.
 DS3 is the main database currently in use with Senior and Disability Services but it is in the process of being replaced. DS3 originally was a Cold Fusion based system but has migrated to a .NET framework.  The replacement system is named Harmony and went live in the winter of 2018.
 MMIS or Medicaid Medical Information System has been replaced by Enterprise and is a good system that Harmony will eventually interface with. This system’s report manager, COGNOS provides a robust system to track data.

Graphic Art Suites: Corel Draw, Inscape, Gimp, Paint Shop Pro, Visio, Star UML, Dia, Freemind

The Corel Draw Suite is a main tool for my drafting and design work for sewing patterns and technical writing. Inkscape is the Open Source version of it and is used to do various drawings in .svg formats.

Umls are used to diagram processes in Visio and Star Uml.

One of my main tools is Freemind, Freeplane and now Scapple for mind mapping ideas and outlining books.

  Office Suites: Master Certified MS Office 2003, MS Office 95-2010, MS Outlook, MS Project, MS Visio, MS SharePoint 2007-2010, OneNote, Open Office, Adobe Pro X and XI

I use or have used all of these office suites heavily. They are the main stay of my workflows.

I am certified in MS Office and have continued my education using State of Alaska Trainings for SharePoint eventually earning the respect of the IT administration team and granted my own sandbox to work in as well as full control over the Provider Certification Unit site and the Division’s Archiving site.

I used OneNote to compile a reference manual of all of the procedures for the Certification unit.

Word and Excel were used heavily to do mail merges as well as many other tasks including checklists and data tracking as well as graphs and charts for reports up to the Federal level.

Adobe Pro was used to “jailbreak” documents into Word and Excel, date stamp incoming certification applications and many other tasks including as a pivotal tool in a massive mail merge. I also used it to create the Certification Application and add fill in fields to ensure that applications were legible and data entry was accurate.

 

This is but a small portion of the variety of software and tools I use or have used on a daily basis. The list could go on and on!
