The bulk of the code was written 10-15 years ago by mix of tech ops people who are no longer with the company.

This project included:

- Creating technical documentation of the existing code flow;

- Document and design a new code flow;

- Develop new code based on new design:

* automation of currently running shell scripts using daemons;

* creating multithreading background processes (parallel running shell scripts) to dramatically increase performance;

* creating shell scripts that watch/manage those background processes (to avoid of zombie processes creation);

* creating restartability features for loading large datafiles into tables;

* involving cron jobs for scheduling of launch of shell scripts;

* adding new options for existing shell scripts;

* improving the operational flow;

* replacing obsolete programs with new ones;

* moving modified and new shell scripts to the new Unix server (Solaris);

- Test the new shell scripts against all the required products and permutations;

- Test performance of new/modified shell scripts;

- Document the resulting code and interface;

- Moving new and modified shell scripts to production server;

- Train necessary engineers and support staff on the new code for handover


- cycle time for processing orders was reduced by 50%;

- number of scripts was decreased;

- dynamical global variable assignment was added to the user’s profiles that allows to use one profile in different

environments (file systems);

- two sets of scripts have been created for working with different versions (involving java calls and original method);

Application Developer

AT&T Hoffman Estates, IL February 2009 – August 2015

Developed, managed and supported application “Automation for Network Provisioning” (ANP) - implemented across five regions: Southeast, Midwest, West, Southwest and East.

Created functionality, using cron jobs, to automate translations provisioning in the legacy wire line switched network for AT&T’s Network Operations National Translations Centers, using cron jobs. Responsible for the development, testing, programming, debugging of the server side code and the testing of the user web interface. Last six months was involved in migration from Unix HP to Linux.

Worked directly with the user community to gather, define, clarify requirements and analyze feedback. Designed and developed middleware software - using programming languages such as TCL, PERL, vendor GENBAND’s PERL API, KORN SHELL/AWK/SED and MYSQL under UNIX/Linux OS.

Created functionality with capability for the ANP business logic to seamlessly communicate with each of the switch type’s operational support systems (OSS) such as Voice Activation Management (VAM), Mechanized Translation System (MTS) and Network and Service Provisioning (NSP).

This feature provides the following functionality:

oLoads switch data from the OSS into the ANP database tables based on demand from the

ANP business logic.

oRetrieves pending switch changes from the ANP business logic database table.

oReformats pending switch changes into the proper switch OSS format and writes

them to the proper switch OSS.

oCreates and removes orders in the switch OSS.

oInitiates the transmission of the order from the OSS to the switch.

oMonitors the OSS during order transmission.

oUpdates north bound systems with the order status.

Utilities software :

oNightly backups: archiving production scripts and log files produced during the day

and ftp them to the backup server.

oGenerated daily order status reports which were emailed to the users.

oMonitoring and managing all running daemons and background processes.

Troubleshooting and Analysis:

oImproved the initial application efficiency from 95% to 99% flow through.

It was accomplished by analyzing issues and designing a daemon process to catch flight time interrupted background processes and restart them automatically.
