Hi, I’m @Carewen (known as Carmien in the business world). My friends call me Carewen, my clients know me as Carmien (because it's complicated :)

I've spent over 12 years as a visual developer with the Nintex Workflow/Forms stack. If you've not heard of Nintex it's a visual workflow development tool on the SharePoint stack.

My opus (so far) is a business automation system for a ~$300M company that builds multi-family homes. This system automates most of their business and has some exciting innovations that we're really excited about. Phase 2 was launched to Sales last month, and it's the system central to their business in the following areas:

  • Land acquisition Building design Estimating (Pro Forma estimating
  • Budgeting
  • Pricebooks for options) Sales Management and Marketing projects CRM Sales inventory and point of sales (supporting touchless sales in a world with COVID)
  • Automated contract builds and classification. electronic signatures and Legal closing
  • A Learned Experience Engine within task assignment
  • Integrated Six Sigma inspired measurement Integrated Support
  • Quality Management Framework and Product R&D workflows And it's a no-code solution, that also happens to be a platform...Which in the world of Nintex is an accomplishment we're proud of
    • If you're tempted to write off no-code, Sharepoint or visual development, I'd invite you to consider the following.
    • As the business analyst, developer and tester, I just used the Nintex stack to solve some real-world problems for a major local company in my market in under 18 months (during COVID). I'm the only developer, supported by a SharePoint architect (who stood the farm up) and our Co-Founder (who purchased the hardware and added the other pieces).
  • In other words, the age-old saying, "you don't know what you don't know" most definitely applies here!

That said, it was only with the release of this system that I came out from under more than a decade of "imposter syndrome", where because I wasn't a "software programmer" I felt I was somehow missing something, somehow less than. That's a story, and I'm a human. :)

I've had some inspiration around some ideas for some web services. I won't get into those as yet because I've been inspired to learn about Python and Web Development.

🌱 I’m currently learning Python: Working through 100 Days of Code - The Complete Python Pro Bootcamp for 2021
