TABLE OF CONTENTS


INTRODUCTION

I have worked as a research assistant, application and system programmer or administrator for the past years. The idea dominated over me, throughout my university and business life, was to specialize in systems programming, system administration and support. So, I generally took positions in projects to support this aim.

Due to a solid background that I gained in computer software and hardware, I am prepared to meet job expectations in a variety of areas such as banking applications, data communications, system, network, storage, web, database management, etc. My favorite programming languages and operating systems that I love to work with are C and its derivative scripting languages under UNIX and Windows.

My most recent experience was on managing a department responsible for the UNIX and Windows administration of development, test, and production environments (including the administration of and operations on HP-UX, Linux, VMware, Windows Servers and Desktop PCs, Local Area and Wide Area Networks, HP OpenView, Oracle, MS SQL Server, Tuxedo, MS IIS, Storage Area Networks, and all related hardware) and supporting the development of the old branch automation system (developed using Computer Associates’ CA Gen product) and the Internet infrastructure of the Bank. Currently I manage 23 people.
