About

My name is Jesse Kyzar. I am a web application developer, originally from the New Orleans area, currently living and working around Baton Rouge, LA.

My professional experience spans over 17 years, working with multiple development platforms such as ASP.NET, Coldfusion, and PHP. My primary focus is on quality and reliability. I specialize in building ASP.Net MVC applications, WCF services, REST/JSON interfaces, and Sharepoint front-end interfaces using various jQuery plugins and web services. I have experience implementing Geo-IP targeted content delivery systems and Google's and Bing's Mapping APIs.

I have worked in PCI and Sarbanes–Oxley compliant environments and understand the mission-critical importance of ensuring sensitive data is properly handled and encrypted using the most up-to-date standards and best practices as well as ensuring critical controls are accessible only by authorized personnel. As part of my professional development, I would regularly receive company-provided training on secure application development, after which my responsibility was to bring my colleagues and I into compliance.

I embrace the challenge of learning new technologies as web development methodologies, standards, and best practices evolve to meet ever-changing business and security needs. I am highly adaptable and work well with others.

On a personal level, I conduct myself in accordance with my traditional Christian values. I'm known for my work ethic, commitment to quality, and light-hearted sense of humor.
