My name is Arif Ahsan and I would like to introduce myself as a dynamic professional capable of handling and executing complex IT assignments. In all my endeavors, I started as a team player but immediately promoted to lead /managers role out of my sheer technical, functional and professional expertise. I have spent more than 9 and half years on different Microsoft technologies and DB tools in designing, constructing, deploying, maintaining and executing various windows and web applications for various prestigious clients like JP Morgan Chase, Qwest Communications, Honda of America manufacturing, Inc adhering the principles of CMM/PCMM as laid down by SEI. I would also like to emphasize on the size of these assignments, Most of the projects were running into several man months, costing millions of dollars.

The initial 4 years was spent mostly on developing windows applications using VC++/COM/VB and SQL SERVER 7/2000 and Oracle 8i/9i tools for database objects with a slight exposure of leading a team. Seagate Crystal Reports reporting tool was used extensively for all kind of reporting requirements. The dot net exposure was really seamless because of the syntactical similarity between VB / VB.NET, and VC++ / C#. I have already spent long 5 years on different dot net technologies that includes .Net framework (1.0/1.1/3.0 and knowledge on 3.5), ADO.NET (Data Adapter, Data set, Data Reader, Data tables), WEB Services (exposing and consuming and using WCF also), XML, XSL, NUNIT tool, Front end design experience using CSS, java scripting and AJAX and have worked with different businesses and in different work environments (XP, TDD, SCRUM etc.). Database design and development activities was the only common effort in all projects, it has been more than 9 and half years working on DDLs, DMLs and DCLs with different versions of SQL SERVER and Oracle and have acquired sound and deep knowledge on different aspect of database engineering like Normalisation, ER Diagrams, SQL Tuning, Data Migration, UML design and have worked on both OLTP and OLAP databases. I have acquired enough knowledge and experience after spending significant amount of time and effort on different aspect of software engineering and hence, I would like to request my candidature for this position.
