Greetings!

Meet Jon Becker

I am a driven individual that enjoys sharing thoughts and ideas. I enjoy being social, meeting with new people, spending time with my family, hanging out with friends and being active. I'm fascinated with technology, in which lead me to earn my Bachelor's degree in Computer Science. Through determination, dedication and hard work, I continue to strive for greatness in everything I do.

Over the last few years, I have been developing and supporting features for enterprise products Symantec/Veritas NetBackup, Backup Exec and EV.Cloud. During this time, I have gained experience at: developing server/client applications; building, integrating and deploying web services and distributed applications; test automation, agile methodologies, building software with continuous integration/continuous delivery pipelines and much more. I have been responsible for the full lifecycle development of features, where I would gather requirements, develop, test, deploy and deliver solutions in a timely manner while satisfying requirements to meet deadlines and release dates. I have led trainings and demos with customers in an agile scrum environment. I am familiar with multiple platforms and applications, such as but not limited to: Microsoft Windows Servers, Linux and Unix Servers, Microsoft Azure, Microsoft Exchange, SQL, SharePoint, Elasticsearch, VMWare and MongoDB. I have a strong proficiency in C++, Java/Spring and C#. I am familiar with other languages as well, including: Perl, Python, PowerShell, Shell Scripting, PHP, JavaScript/JQuery and more. I also have experience with provisioning, configuration management and deployment tools such as Terraform, Puppet, Ansible and Docker. Along with these skills, I also have a strong knowledge of many developer applications, tools, patterns and architectures, frameworks, methodologies and best practices to help me build solutions efficiently. I have two Microsoft certifications; one, for development in SharePoint 2010 (MCTS), and the other for programming in HTML5, JavaScript and CSS3 (MS). My interests are in distributed applications, cloud and mobile development. Feel free to reach out to me for questions and/or advice.

  • .NET Development

    I've been developing .NET applications for the last few years professionally and recreationally. As a consultant, I got great exposure to the .NET world. I have experience creating solutions with technologies such as, but not limited to, SharePoint 2007/2010, MVC, WCF, ASP.NET Web API, Entity Framework, LINQ, SQL and PowerShell.

  • Web Development

    Over the years, I've create web sites and web applications. As of late, I've began to focus more on developing web applications; since they are similar to mobile applications the web applications create a more user friendly and flexible experience from desktops to hand-held devices. My experience with web development consist of HTML, HTML5, MVC, CSS, JavaScript, jQuery and PHP.

    Professionally, my work has been more geared towards .NET and web development. However, I have worked with other technologies such as Java, Android development, C, C++, VIM, Ruby, Pascal, Visual Basic, MIPS assembly language and more.
