Thomas M. De Neui Consulting
June 2007 to January 2010
After 30 years of distinguished service in the IT industry, the last five years
away from home Mr. De Neui took a brief sabbatical to catch up on things back
home. During this time Mr. De Neui
completed several home improvement projects: a total exterior renovation of a
second home in north central Minnesota and the finishing of a basement including
installation of a new bathroom in his primary residence in Lakeville, Minnesota.
Wishing to broaden his technical competencies Mr. De Neui used his free time to
review and take coursework in three major web technologies, Microsoft .Net, Java
and the open source LAMP platform. In
order to develop an in depth understanding of at least one of the technologies
Mr. De Neui selected the Perl language and LAMP platform to complete a pilot
project for his own company. This
pilot project would be to write the programs that would allow the completion,
submission and review of status reports, timesheets and expense reports over the
world wide web. The pilot
project was a huge success and inspired Mr. De Neui to attempt a far more
aggressive project, a project management information system using both the
waterfall and agile/scrum methodologies.
Midway through the project, Mr. De Neui won a contract through URS for
some work with the United States Army and so work on the project management
information system was tabled.
