I work as a Senior Business Analyst for a telecommunications company in Vancouver, BC.

I am currently writing and maintaining a web application in .NET for use by thousands of our field technicians and hundreds of managers and professionals. The software is used to increase company wide participation in personal training and learning.

My thoughts and/or ideas do not reflect upon my employer.

comment I'm doing 90% maintenance and 10% development, is this normal?
As someone in their first programming job, the best thing I have done is work with management to create a bug tracking sheet (in Sharepoint), a change request form, and a reasonable development process that requires sign off from key people, testing, and requirements gathering. It's best to create a first version of these and iterate on them until they work well for everyone. Admittedly you probably need receptive management for this.
