Here you will find a listing of the best programming articles I have written. These were based on work I did for customers in my hometown of Cleveland, Ohio USA. They illustrate the depth of my knowledge that you can harness to make your business more efficient and productive!


I make it a point to write articles about coding techniques I created for my customers in the Cleveland, Ohio USA area to further their automation and productivity objectives. I do it for 2 reasons. First, offsite SEO (search engine optimization for my website with Google dofollow backlinks I inserted in articles I published on other IT websites). Secondly, to contribute to the software development community. Below are the best programming articles I have published on IT websites. These article topics explore in depth some of my most intense and creative coding techniques.

In the article titled "Borland C++ List Sorting Algorithm", I used a very in depth explanation of how the programming code was designed to sort a list of up to 16,000 items. The technique I conjured for this was pretty deep and theoretical in nature, so I tried to explain it as best I could. I even used an analogy with the American Transcontinental Railroad construction from the 19th century to hopefully make it easier for readers to understand. It's a radical coding technique to be sure so some people may be threatened by its unconventional nature, but that comes with the territory when you innovate something new.

In another article, "My Automated PHP Scripts For Creating Ftp Connections To A Remote Server", I talked about 2 PHP scripts I created for the purpose of connecting to a web server of a mutual fund company. These scripts ran consecutively at predetermined times on an financial services company's web server crontab manager. After the connection was made and the database had been opened, a predefined .csv file was opened and the contents were streamed back to the customer's website. The "streamed back" data was then processed to further show how closing securities prices reflected changes in multiple investment client's accounts on a daily, weekly, monthly and quarterly basis.

Like "My Automated PHP Scripts For Creating Ftp Connections To A Remote Server" above, the article titled "PHP to Construct cURL Script to Facilitate Data Streaming" performed the same task, but with a different twist. This writing discussed how I used cURL script to retreive a transaction id from DST Systems, Inc. in Kansas City, Missouri USA. The purpose was to also download financial transaction data files, but from multiple companies, not just one as discussed in the previous paragraph. The retreived transaction id was then sent back to the DST Fan Mail web server to get a "xml" file of available financial transaction data files that were available for download. Next, I used each file name in the received "xml" file to construct cURL script directives with from proprietary PHP coding I designed. Each "constructed" cURL script directive was sent back to the DST Systems, Inc. web server in Kansas City to "stream back" the financial data files for further processing with PHP scripts on the financial company website's crontab manager. This fully automated application showcased some of the best programming in PHP I've done. The code is narrated with commentary to describe the PHP coding and cURL script used. Interesting reading - if you can handle it!

These published articles demonstrate my versatility as a coder as well as some of the best programming I have done for my customers. Please use my email and phone contact page today to get in touch with me so we can talk about what I can offer to make your business more efficent and productive.
