Asp.Net/C# developer

Developed several web pages for a company, mostly concerning hotel and restaurant WebPages. I used VS 2010 and Umbraco CMS to manage, publish and modify contents of WebPages. HTML and XSLT files were also extensively used. The back-end development was either done in ASP and C# or is some cases XML scripting and Razor was used for functionality features. A list of links for the front end of the web sites can be provided on request. All back end development is done always keeping in mind that the end user must be able to use the CMS easily.

In addition to the back end development and Umbraco support I was responsible for server setup as well as IIS and SQL server setup, installation and configuration.

Software engineer

Worked developing web applications using ASP.Net and C# in Visual Studio 2010. The development process follows the agile methodology and JIRA is used to manage the process. Nunit tests are used to assure the stability of the applications as per the Test Driven Development guidelines. Version control is done by using SVN. Due to the diverse nature of the project that the company is involved in I am also called to work on Java projects using Eclipse. Depending on the project Oracle, MSSQL or Mysql is used for database support. Some of the project use NHibernate to access the database entries.

Analyst Programmer

My role for M&Co involved supporting the transition of the IT department from the existing system to new Microsoft technologies including but not limited to TFS, Azure, C#, ASP.net, Windows Scripting, Console Apps, Windows Forms.

Software Developer

At this role I was developing new applications for the company using new technologies including but not limited to bootstrap CSS, MVVM, Knockout JS, Durandal, Hot Towel, etc... The base functionality of all applications is c# and MSSQL that is developed via remote desktop onto a virtual machine with windows server 2012, VS 2013 and MSSQL server 2012.
Additionally my responsibilities include debugging and improving existing applications as well as supporting the company agents during evening shift in order to assure the smooth operation of the asterisk phone server and IVR scripts.
Moreover, this role was based from home and not an office. As a result it was imperative to maintain a disciplined schedule and be able to avoid distractions that would interfere with my work.

Systems Developer

At this role I was asked to investigate the creation of a full CRM system for a branch of the company. I was responsible for the requirements elicitation and to look into existing CRMs as possible starting points and build onto them. I had the opportunity to interact with the stakeholders directly and in the end produce a really high quality and helpful bespoke CRM system.
Furthermore, I was supporting the existing in-house CRM solution for a branch of the company.
Some technologies I used during my time at AC where: MVC, C#, MSSQL 2012, Entity framework 6, VS2013, Telerik, SVN.

Software Developer

As part of my work with CezanneHR I was tasked to completely redesign the way that searches on the product work. It was decided to use entity framework in order to introduce the team and product to it as the product was based on ADO.
Additionally, I redesigned parts of the database to improve performance and accommodate the new way that the product worked. Furthermore, I had to make alteration to the typescript files in order to accommodate the server side changes that are passed via a WCF api. The product also has a number of supporting software tools that had to be altered to support the improvements.
Finally, I was helping junior team members with their coding and keeping track of a number of development branches when the team lead was away. I was also involved in the recruitment process of new members as the team was expanding.

Some of the technologies I used include but are not limited to C#, EF, WCF, MSSQL, visual studio online build server, redis cache, GIT, and to a lesser extend TypeScript & Angular.

Evangelos NikolaropoulosMr. CHRISTOFORIDIS Georgios, Imm.Nr. 1688, has participated to my course “Computer Based Systems Engineering”, during the Summer Semester 2009 at the University of Applied Sciences (TEI) of Kavala, Greece. In the frame of this course he participated to the group project work of creating a fully functional embedded system (both HW and SW) through all engineering phases, from concept up to customer acceptance in only 6 weeks. The system developed by the group of Mr. Christoforidis was an „automatic pill dispenser’ for usage in hospitals. It comprised the possibility to enter prescriptions for all patients on a PC connected with the pill dispenser, by itself an embedded system. The system released the appropriate pills according to the dosage indications of the prescriptions at various times of the day and printed a label with the name of the medicament and the patient id. This project has been very successful mainly due to the active involvement of Mr. Christoforidis to almost all areas of the development, beyond his main assignment as software project leader. The project has received the highest grade. Mr. Christoforidis is very interested on everything related to computer technology, he is learning very fast and is able to transform his knowledge into results. He is a hard worker without neglecting his excellent social skills. Mr. Christoforidis‟ work is “results oriented” and characterized by very high quality. His contributions are always a step ahead of what he has been taught in the School. Contact
