I am James Russo, Software Architect and Senior Developer. I have a rich history finding creative solutions to improve & create software within budget and calendar constraints. While perfection may not be obtainable, aiming for it is always my desire. When not working, you can find me gaming, in the woodworking shop, or on hikes with my wife.
Building off the Win32 RTI Inc. application, I designed, prototyped, and started the development of the new Hybrid-Cloud Web application version of the product. This included finding a seam in the business layer code that could be abstracted into a new layer; for which the existing SOAP endpoints would continue to function unchanged and allow us to build a brand new JSON Restful API on top - coined the 'moatify pattern'.
While I still review all code that is related to this project, it has scaled out to multiple 5+ man teams working on various features aimed at replacing the Win32 application.
Acting Database Administrator and developer for Southeastern's PeopleSoft installation. Implemented new features for the University's personnel. Created and submitted bug fixes using the PeopleSoft development platform.
I'm a huge advocate for running a "HomeLab". Typically it starts out from needing to running a media server for a few videos, then it spirals out of control (in a good way). Below are a few services that I run for myself and my family. I find it's a great way to learn about new technologies and know where my data lives.
