Bee Communication was a Greek Internet start-up during the dot-com era. As the company leader I was responsible for all company activity and performance.
We started Bee as an Internet Service Provider but focussed most of our business on web application development including many e-learning and e-commerce applications as well as various web portals.
Charged with both business and technical leadership, I had the opportunity to gain experience and insight in diverse fields during my 6 years at Bee. To mention but a few: business planning, business development, public procurement and tenders, contract negotiation, recruitment and more. At the same time I was directly involved with all technology we were using or developing including network infrastructure, routing, security, data centers, server and application level technologies etc.
At Bee we were making extensive use of Linux based technologies (mainly Apache, MySQL, PHP) but were also developing applications using ASP, Microsoft SQL Server, and early versions of Exchange Server, Commerce Server and Project Server.
