AccessAyco is a website service for providing secure sensitive document delivery to clients. I worked as the sole developer on this project borrowing some libraries from AycoFinancialNetwork.com and innovating a significant portion of the controls, page structure, and deployment architecture. This project required me to work with creative services, counseling business, and the document storage team as well as demonstrate the site's functionality. I had to use .NET remoting from the web server to connect to an SQL database and filesystem in the data access layer. Source control, unit testing, and user acceptance testing were practiced. My largest accomplishments were using this project to demonstrate new technologies which would allow for easier maintenance and development in other projects and working with multiple business teams.
