About Me

Who Am I?

Hi I'm Philippe El Asmar and I am a Software Engineer with 4 years of experience in creating, maintaining and deploying software end-to-end using a variety of technologies.

My experience ranges from developing and adapting in-house reporting tools in JAVA and deploying through a Pipeline on Production using Git and Jenkins, to developing and deploying dashboards and reports on Qlik Sense, a self-service dashboarding tool, all the way to extending software functionality and integrating with third party systems.

From an architecture perspective, I have designed with the help of Qlik a scalable architecture that will handle the needs of the business for the foreseen future as well as handled the administration of the environment.

In efforts to expand and integrate Qlik Sense with company-set objectives, I leveraged the available APIs to provide easier user access, versioning capabilities as well as one-click move to production using C# and ASP.NET.


The following components summarize my fields of interest:

Development

Data Science

Integration

Business Intelligence

I have successfully developed software projects from inception to company-wide roll out!
