Sonic.net is a regional ISP in Northern California.
I started writing code in grade school, but it wasn't until I started working for Sonic.net at 17 that I got serious about it. During my tenure there, I built all manner of systems. My main responsibility was the entirely custom, in-house accounts receivables system. It's backed by MySQL, witten in Perl, with a PHP frontend and a SOAP interface between the two. It's been continuously refactored and improved over the years, and has now been in service for over a decade.
Other projects included:
- An interface for the AT&T (then Pacific Bell) DSL ordering and provisioning backend
- Maintained the tech support ticket tracker (developed in-house), added MIME email support
- Built a website statistics generation package, including visualizations in Perl/GD (this was before decent stats/dataviz libraries existed)
