About


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 am also proud to be a part of the Business Improvement team at Flinders University.

I use my technical skills to help develop solutions to complex problems that improve business processes and deliver value to the university community.

Work Portfolio


Business Improvement

I am the Solution Lead in the Business Improvement (BI) team at Flinders University.

I use my technical skills (analysis, design and development) to develop systems that support improved processes.

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

Robotic Process Automation

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

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

In the fourth quarter of 2018 the team progressed from implementing our first proof of concept through to our first three automated process in production.

Solution Design

I lead the design of solutions that are implemented as part of a process improvement project.

In the next six months I will complete training and certification in The Open Group Architecture Framework.

This will improve my knowledge of, and ability to implement, information technology architecture transformation projects.

Gundam Models


Assembling Gundam models, known as gunpla (a portmanteau of "Gundam plastic model") is one of my hobbies. Photos of my completed models can be found here.

Counted Cross-stitch


A few months ago I took up counted cross-stitch again. I find it a very relaxing hobby, counting stitches is almost a form of meditation for me. Photos of my completed pieces can be found here.

Reading


I am an avid reader of books. Mostly sci-fi and fantasy fiction. I keep track of my books on Goodreads.

In late 2018 I started listening to audio books on Audible as well. I find listening to audio books helps occupy the rest of my mind when I'm engaged in my other hobbies. Or when doing other mundane tasks like housework and cooking.

Writing


One of my goals for 2019 is to post more of my writing at my other website Existential Dreams.

Technical Communication


I have a strong interest in good technical communication. I believe the ability to communicate and engage is a valuable skill for people working in information technology. For this reason I am a member of the Australian Society of Technical Communication.
