About my website

My name is Corey Wallis, in many places online I am known as Techxplorer.

I am a proud husband and father, living in Adelaide, South Australia.

I work at Flinders University.

My main interests outside of work at listed on my Hobbies page.

Business improvement

I have over 14 years experience in the higher education sector in Australia. Over the year I have held a number of different roles building on my skills in:

  1. Business analysis
  2. Software development
  3. Data analysis
  4. Systems analysis and design
  5. Technical communication

I am the Solution Lead in the Business Improvement team, at Flinders University.

I use my skills to develop solution designs and implement systems that support improved processes.

I also use my communication and collaboration skills to liaise with project stakeholders, the BI team, and other teams to deliver the solution.

Robotic process automation (RPA)

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is a tool that the BI team is using as part of our process improvement projects.

I am the lead developer for our RPA solutions using UiPath platform.

Much of the code developed for our automations has been released as open source. You can checkout the code on the Flinders University page on GitHub.

Solution design

I lead the design of solutions that are implemented as part of one of our Business Improvement projects.

This includes:

  1. Identifying possible systems to provide required functionality
  2. Designing system interactions and linkages
  3. Writing specification documents
  4. Working with implementation teams on solution delivery
  5. Developing required software

Software development

Not only is software development one of my hobbies, it is part of my work. I have developed some NodeJs applications to help with our RPA development. Including:

  • RPA Lint - An application that undertakes static analysis of the UiPath code to ensure it meets our agreed development standards. More information.
  • RPA Doc - An application that generates documentation using the annotations in the UiPath code. More information.

Technical communication

I have a strong interest in technical communication. The ability to communicate and engage is an invaluable skill for people working in information technology.

For this reason I am a member of the Australian Society of Technical Communication.
