Last month we had a global virtual hack-a-thon where people from all over the world spent their business day hacking on Alfresco-related projects. In today's episode of Tech Talk Live we discuss some of the projects that came out of that effort including integration with Amazon Glacier, Pentaho integration, cmislib browser binding, data list enhancements, and even a Minecraft mod that lets you visualize your repo.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Jeff Potts. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Tech Talk Live is a monthly, live session devoted entirely to a technical topic related to Alfresco. This month we will have a panel to discuss administering Alfresco on AWS.

Amazon Web Services is currently the biggest public cloud, and is often the preferred platform for hosting an Alfresco instance. This session covers tips and best practices for successfully planning, installing, and administering an Alfresco instance hosted at AWS. Our panel will include Steve Rigby (Alfresco), Luis Sala (Alfresco), and Michael McCarthy (Tribloom).
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Jeff Potts. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

I'm looking forward to the New York City #Alfresco meetup Thursday night. We've got a full agenda with real customers giving three short presentations covering custom solutions they've built ranging from WCM to DM to Microsoft Office integration. The event is free to attend but building security requires everyone to RSVP before-hand, so don't miss out!
Alfresco NYC Meetup members are a mix of customers, partners, and open source developers who use the platform to solve their content problems. We meet quarterly to share our stories and network. Our meetings are a mix of informal mix-and-mingle as well as formal presentations. In April we will be gathering to discuss alternatives to the out-of-the-box interface. Alfresco Share is wonderful, but what do you do when you need something extremely spe...

Employment
  • Metaversant Group, Inc.
    Founder, 2010 - present
    Metaversant is a professional services firm focused on helping clients get the most out of their digital assets, whether those assets are office documents, web content, rich media (images, audio, video), or legal records. The primary way we make that happen is by implementing custom content-centric and process-centric solutions using open source technologies like Alfresco.
  • Alfresco
    Chief Community Officer, 2011 - 2014
    I spent my time at Alfresco traveling the world, speaking at conferences and meetups, writing blog posts, hacking code, and authoring a second book. I took a small developer event and grew it into a 1000-person conference including a successful pivot to appeal not just to geeks but also to practitioners and business people. I established a marketplace where more than 300 community-contributed solutions were listed, mostly as freely-available open source software. Alfresco Community Edition was downloaded something like 4 million times during my tenure, which isn't too shabby for enterprise software. Most important to me were the members of the community I met and worked with from all parts of the world. It was truly a special experience.
  • Optaros
    Sr. Director, ECM, 2006 - 2010
    While I was at Optaros the Boston-based firm was focused exclusively on delivering business value to clients with open source technology. I ran the ECM practice which consisted almost entirely of Alfresco and Drupal projects. During that time I worked on projects for clients such as Activision, Sony Pictures, Turner Broadcasting, Travelocity, and Orbitz.
  • Hitachi Consulting
    Vice President, ECM, 2006
    Hitachi Consulting acquired Navigator Systems. After the acquisition I continued to run the ECM practice as described below.
  • Navigator Systems
    Practice Director, ECM, 1997 - 2006
    In the early days of Navigator the ECM practice was about collaboration and knowledge management. We primarily did custom Lotus Notes and Domino implementations. We then started doing content management projects. Some were custom. Others were on Interwoven and Autonomy. Ultimately we focused on Documentum and saw a lot of success with that. I ran the practice and billed on projects, typically as an architect, for clients such as BNSF, PepsiCo, Frito-Lay, Texas Instruments, and Southwest Airlines.
  • ClubCorp
    I led the Lotus Notes team for ClubCorp, a company that owns and operates country clubs, social clubs, and fitness clubs all over the country. I developed a variety of custom Lotus Notes applications including a web content management solution for country club managers.
  • Sprint
    I was a member of the Lotus Notes team at Sprint where I developed a number of custom Lotus Notes applications.
  • Texas Instruments
    I was a member of the Mainframe Computing Services department at Texas Instruments where I was part of a team that managed systems software changes to TI's worldwide data centers.

Story
Tagline
Devoted family guy, content management consultant, Alfresco expert, open source advocate, developer, blogger, author
Introduction
I'm a long-time content management, business process management, and search consultant. I've been focused on implementing solutions in these areas using open source since 2006 and on proprietary technologies since long before that. I wrote the Alfresco Developer Guide (Packt) in 2008 and co-authored CMIS & Apache Chemistry in Action (Manning) in 2013. I am an Alfresco Certified Engineer and an Alfresco Certified Administrator. From 2011 to 2014 I served as Alfresco's Chief Community Officer. I've lived in the Dallas area since 1992.
