In early 2017 I accepted a position at the Pennsylvania State University as a Programmer/Analyst, specializing in the Drupal content management system. I also provide auxiliary support for alternative frameworks such as WordPress, Symfony, and NodeJS. Most notably, I spearheaded the original implementation a unified single sign on authentication solution for cloud hosted web properties governed by Penn State Outreach and Online Education which has since expanded to other IT units at Penn State. I have also worked on several other high impact integration points with University infrastructure and third party vendors such as:
- Talisma chat client
- Acquia (cloudhooks, pipelines, ACAPI v1, ACAPI v2)
- The Penn State Central Persons Registry
- The Penn State Outreach Marketing CRM system
- The Ghost Inspector testing platform
- Gitlab CI/CD
- Amazon Web Services
I have also introduced continuous integration and automated testing into the development process for the web strategy development team. I maintain the cloud based testing infrastructure that our processes rely on every day.
Prior to Penn State, I was employed by a small Fortune 500 company performing a multitude of duties including software development, systems administration, and even highly technical machinery calibration and repair. Some highlights of my appointment include creating and launching an online marketplace application with over 2000 vendors, implementing integrations between an existing Magento based store and other popular e-commerce systems, performing custom Joomla development and troubleshooting, and responding to security related incidents.
