Shawn McClure

Senior Software Engineer
Fort Collins, Colorado


I'm a software engineer with over 20 years of experience in software development, database design, application development, systems analysis, and data modeling. I'm proficient in a wide variety of programming languages, design methodologies, and development techniques, and have designed and developed a wide variety of real-world software systems for a broad spectrum of applications across all phases of the software development life cycle. I've built relational database management systems, database-enabled websites, scientific and business applications, mission-critical data exchange applications, web services, and mobile desktop applications, and I've managed software development teams of between 2-5 people for a variety of corporations and Federal agencies.

Most recently, I've been working on the Conditions and Trends Tools and the Federal Land Manager Environmental Database (FED) for the National Park Service, as well as the Intermountain West Data Warehouse for the NPS, BLM, USFS, EPA, and the states of Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming. Both of these projects involve the development of information system components to manage large volumes of air quality data and serve this data to end users on the web, and these components are being designed to leverage and signficantly extend the integrated framework of database, software, and website infrastructure that was originally developed for the VIEWS project. Details about all these projects - as well as a number of other related projects that use the same infrastructure - can be found by clicking on the "Recent Work" links below.
