Lead Developer. I was brought in to rescue the failing ruby API project. Over the course of my involvement I sometimes hired additional developers to help add bandwidth to the API project.
The Trinexum API was built as a way to expose Trinexum Data to a variety of endpoints. The two primary endpoints where the web application that was being rewritten in ASP.NET and a mobile app being developed in PhoneGap.
The Trinexum system is a series of systems designed to help YMCAs (and similar organizations) to handle everything:
- card access
- course registration
- camp registration
Initially the task was to evaluate the existing code base and get the API ready for launch for a single YMCA.
After the API launched, enhancements and modifications included:
- Expanding the number of YMCAs that used the new systems
- Adding features so the web and mobile clients could gain parity with the previous web app

I was originally hired by NetVentures who was aquired by daxko.
