• Freelance Senior Software Developer with 10 years’ experience developing software and designing and integrating systems. • Looking for front-end or back-end web development position; remote only; open-source preferred; will learn whatever is needed for your job, but strongest with Perl, JavaScript, TypeScript, Haskell. • In my spare time, I’m designing a new programming language, Global Script, where I’m trying to incorporate what I’ve learned from experience and self-study about software architecture and systems design. Social Media • github: https://github.com/jonathancast • LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/jonathancast/ • StackOverflow: https://stackoverflow.com/users/1473927/jonathan-cast Principle Skills Testing • Learned test-driven development and wrote unit tests and integration tests at Rentrak, and employed those skills throughout my development work at NYAB, EML, and on Global Script. • Wrote automated integration test suites using Selenium and Python at Givelify, and set them up to run under Jenkins. • Performed manual testing of all software written at Rentrak, NYAB, and EML to ensure quality and correctness before handing them over to QA. Application Design • Helped steer the design of the application at Rentrak and EML. • Helped design the SOA Architecture at EML. Principle Technologies Software-Development Lifecycle • Worked throughout the software-development lifecycle on all projects, from initial conception through coding and developer testing to working with QA and deploying and testing in production. Relational Database • Used Postgres at Rentrak, including writing SQL for application functions. • Use Sybase ASE at EML and worked on Postgres migration project. Functional Programming • Love functional programming; introduced several FP idioms at Rentrak and EML, as well as basing Global Script on the functional paradigm. Agile • Used Scrum and Kanban to regularly deliver software at EML. I found that I preferred Kanban, both for the lower ceremony load and because working in sprints, for us, never produced a steady load on the developers. Continuous Integration • I develop Global Script using continuous integration practices and helped both Rentrak and EML move toward continuous integration testing and continuous deployment best-practices, including the use of Jenkins for testing at EML. • Helped introduced continuous testing using Jenkins at Givelify. Principle Tools Perl • Used Perl at Rentrak, NYAB, and EML as a software developer; also used Perl for automation and scripting tasks throughout that time, including primary use of Perl for automated data transfer at NYAB. Haskell • Learned Haskell in college, and used it in a research position at OU; using Haskell in the new Global Script implementation. SQL • Used SQL at Rentrak, NYAB, EML, and Givelify for database access. Linux • Developed for Linux at Rentrak, NYAB, and EML. Python • Used Python to write automated tests at Givelify. Additional Skills Installation • Worked on automated deployment processes at Rentrak and EML. • Performed stage deployments at EML, and assisted in prod deployments, including diagnosing issues with the code once it went live and finding missing configuration changes. • Migrated EML production website from an obsolete domain name to a supported domain, including software configuration and Apache configuration changes. Additional Technologies Integration • Worked on system integration at EML and migrated EML to SOA, including developing new REST-based APIs for the legacy system at EML and worked with other developers to design the integration between new services and the legacy system. • Worked on integrations with external systems (customers and providers) at EML. REST • Wrote new REST-based APIs for the legacy system at EML and worked with other developers to design the integration between new services and the legacy system. Additional Tools JavaScript • Used JavaScript for front-end tasks as required at Rentrak and EML. CGI Scripts • Used CGI scripting at Rentrak for web development. HTML • Wrote and modified HTML at Rentrak and (particularly) at EML for front-end tasks as required. CSS • Wrote and modified CSS as needed at EML for front-end tasks. jQuery • Used jQuery a little bit at EML for front-end development. Apache • Used Apache at Rentrak and EML; made Apache configuration changes at EML, including migrating a website to a new URL. git • Worked on the SVN to git transition at Rentrak, including designing the branching and merging strategy for their shared code. Used git heavily at EML. AWS • Used AWS servers at Givelify. • I’ve started migrating Global Script’s web presence to AWS, and am planning to learn more about AWS over time. AngularJS • I started learning AngularJS last year. Shell • Used shell scripting for automation and development tasks through my career. Selenium • Used Selenium to write automated tests at Givelify. Jenkins • Used Jenkins for automated testing and deployment at EML and Givelify. Software Development Experience Personal Project: Caleo Greeter April 2018-Present https://github.com/jonathancast/ecclesia-greeter Principle tools: Angular, JavaScript, Perl, Dancer, Linux, Postgres Wrote simple web application to be run on a tablet at the greeter’s desk at church. It allows members to check themselves in, making it easier for the church to track attendance, and would also act as a guest book for visitors. All data is uploaded to a DB, and Greeter also allows attendance data to be retrieved and examined by the church elders at any time during the week. Personal Project: Music Player April 2018-April 2018 https://hub.darcs.net/jcast/music-player Principle tools: Perl, Linux, SQLite Got fed up with the music player applications that were available for Linux, so I decided to write my own, using Perl / DBIC / SQLite. Givelify July 2017-Mar 2018 Senior Software Engineer Dallas, Texas Principle tools: Linux, Amazon AWS, Python, Selenium, Jenkins, BrowserStack, Integration Testing, PHP Givelify is a mobile donations provider for churches and non-profits. Its founder was inspired when, in church one day, he wanted to make an offering, but found himself without the means to do so; he realized that, since most people have their phones on them at all times, a mobile application for giving would make it more convenient for donors and increase donations for donees. • Developed automated integration tests using Python and Selenium, and ran them automatically through Jenkins. Experimented with using BrowserStack, but found that it added an additional variable that actually made the tests less reliable than using Selenium and Firefox to run them locally on Linux. Personal Project: Global Script (Haskell Implementation) Sep 2016 - Present https://hub.darcs.net/jcast/hsglobalscript3 https://hub.darcs.net/jcast/globalscript-spec Principle tools: Haskell, rc, Integration Tests, TDD Global Script is a family of purely-functional domain-specific languages, based on a common syntax. The syntax strikes what, in my opinion, is a good balance between the ML/Haskell style and the Lisp style; it’s extensible in similar ways to a Lisp, while retaining (and, in my opinion, improving) the readability of Haskell. • Keeping the language purely functional and pushing environment-dependent facilities out of the core language implementation has several advantages. ? Refusing to resort to side effects means that we’re likely to generate more information about what can and cannot be done without them. ? Global Script is intended to work in all environments; not only server-side (like most languages) or on the desktop, but also in the browser, in DB stored procedures, in code uploaded to a server and run server-side, etc. Keeping the core language environment-independent makes it easier to guarantee that code that shouldn’t do file I/O is incapable of it. • Having a common core language means that data structures and functions can still be re-used between stored procedures, middle-layer software, and client-side software. • Global Script allows model-view-controller applications to give different types to model and view code, which makes it easier to keep them separate, while still allowing them to communicate. • The current Global Script implementation consists of a translator from Global Script to Haskell, written in Haskell, and another parser / type-checker / interpreter for Global Script written in Global Script itself, and compiled to Haskell using the Haskell version of the compiler. I am working on filling out this second Global Script implementation until the first compiler can be re-implemented in Global Script, removing the direct Haskell dependency. Assurant Valuations (was eMortgageLogic) Jan 2014-Jan 2017 Senior Software Developer North Richland Hills, Texas Principle tools: Linux, Apache, Perl, JavaScript, ActiveMQ, TDD, Unit Testing, Kanban, Scrum Maintained and extended automated system for collecting Broker Price opinion (BPO) and Appraisal (APR) orders from banks, offering orders to brokers and/or appraisers, and collecting BPO / APR data, rendering BPOs as PDFs, and sending final deliverables to banks. A BPO differs from an APR in that it’s completed by an experience real estate broker and not by a licensed appraiser. Banks are required to use APRs for certain decisions (in particular, loan originations) by relevant banking regulations; for other decisions, they purchase BPOs for cost reasons (APRs are 5-10x as expensive as BPOs). • Wrote auditing software for the APR assignment process (which is highly regulated), allowing EML to demonstrate that the best appraiser available was fulfilling each APR order. • Removed substantial dead code from the legacy system, preparing for a transfer to a new system. • Introduced object-oriented entity class system, improving caching and performance as well as creating a uniform API internally. • Introduced DBIx::Class-based persistence layer, reducing the amount of hand-written SQL in the system significantly and speeding up the process of conversion from Sybase to Postgres. • Introduced Test::Class-based unit testing system, reducing start-up time and allowing better test isolation. • Sped up the webpage for brokers to accept orders, and tied it to the automated assignment process to prevent unqualified brokers from getting orders. • Wrote single sign-on system for EML employees to share usernames and passwords between the legacy system and the new systems. Personal Project: Global Script (C Implementation) Jan 2011 – Sep 2016 https://hub.darcs.net/jcast/globalscript Principle tools: Linux, C, rc, Integration Tests, Unit Tests, TDD This was an old implementation of the Global Script runtime. I abandoned it because I was unable to make it stable in practice on large programs. It’s divided into three pieces: a C language library common to all languages which implements the basic calculus, a per-language C program using that library, and a set of compiler passes written in the Global Script-based language IBIO, which translate source-level Global Script to a level the C library understands. It takes an intermediate language I intended to produce from a compiler; this is purely functional, and Global Script evaluation as performed by the library has no side effects. New York Air Brake, Train Dynamic Systems Division Jul 2013-Jan 2014 Software Developer Irving, Texas Principle Tools: Linux, Perl, SQLite, Integration tests, Shell, KML Worked on Perl scripts for loading track and item location into SQLite database for use by train simulator. TDS built its simulations to be as close to the exact tracks the engineers will be driving over as possible. Rentrak Corporation Aug 2007 – Oct 2012 Senior Software Engineer Portland, OR Principle tools: Linux, Apache, Perl, speedy_cgi, Mason, Unit Tests, TDD Wrote TV measurement (ratings) reports for networks. Rentrak does many kinds of media measurement, based on enormous amounts of data (up to 90% of all available data in for some media), and I worked on the roll-out of their linear TV project. • Wrote a new system for generating reports in Excel, based on Mason templates that generated XML, with emphasis both on the appearance of the reports (we wanted them to look good when printed and distributed to advertisers) and the usefulness of the reports as spreadsheets. • Enhanced the report SQL auto-generation logic to handle trickier data than Rentrak had previously used. • Developed Average Audience and Rating calculations to meet customer requirement, including custom logic for summarizing Average Audience from internal data. • Championed and enhanced re-usable object-oriented system for report display, and for delivering reports uniformly across HTML, PDF, and Excel output. University of Oklahoma 2001 - 2003 Research Assistant Norman, OK Principle tools: Haskell This project was for an experiment with replacing the standard Discrete Math curriculum for Computer Science students with a functional programming/software reasoning course. The project was to build a proof checker for boolean algebra. • The proof-checker was built as a DSL in Haskell; boolean expressions and proofs were encoded as Haskell expressions, with a function in the IO monad to take a proof, check it, and report validity/invalidity to the user. • The proof-checker was used as an aid for teaching the students equational reasoning; the course taught boolean algebra first before moving on to equational reasoning in Haskell.

Check out more samples by visiting my website, www.CaricaturesByJared.weebly.com. I have been a free-lance artist/illustrator for over 20 years. I work in caricature art and children's book illustration. My skills as a caricaturist complement children's book illustrations where likeness to an actual person/animal/character is crucial to the work. A collection of my caricature art recently finished an 8-week gallery exhibition at the Historic Arkansas Museum. Pieces focused on Notable Arkansans, Pop-Culture celebrities, and an In-Memoriam series dedicated to some celebrities who passed away in 2012. I am available for live events in the central Arkansas area (or state-wide with a travel fee) and for work via email. Contact me at caricaturesbyjared@gmail.com.
