I have worked on portal deployments of all sizes from intranet solutions that serve fortune 50 companies to full-scale external facing Web portals. My experience includes IBM legacy, JSR168, and JSR286 portlet development, deep knowledge of portlet development best practices, development of themes and skins of all types (including the WebSphere Portal modular themes with and without WebDAV), portal deployments, migrations, and staging to delivery methods, deep knowledge of xmlaccess and managed pages, development of WebSphere Portal ESMs for integration of custom authorization frameworks (e.g. database entitlements), and deep experience in all aspects Portal administration, setup and customization of Portal Search and OmniFind. In addition, I was a member of the IBM portal development team for 10 years and was responsible for the architecture and development of many of the IBM provided portlets shipping with IBM WebSphere Portal. Finally, I have developed and delivered training to many organizations on many aspects of WebSphere Portal.
I have extensive experience with all aspects of IBM Web Content Manager from versions 5.1 through 8.5. I have worked on portal & WCM deployments of all sizes from intranet solutions that serve fortune 50 companies to full-scale external facing Web portals. My experience includes installation, setup, architecture & design, best practices, development, performance, troubleshooting, and training. Highlights include customization of authoring user interface via custom JSPs, extensive rendering customization via Java based plugin points (rendering plugins, context processors, text providers, etc) and custom JSPs , integration and implementation with OmniFind, Personalization, and Portal Search, and Integration of IBM Connections using Social Rendering and DDC. I also have extensive experience using and customizing the Content Template Catalog (CTC). I wrote course material for the CTC and gave training sessions with it on many occasions. During my tenure at IBM, I also wrote the original Internet and Intranet Templates provided with Portal Express 188.8.131.52 which the CTC are ultimately based on.
I have experience with all aspects of Drupal 8 development including backend development, frontend development, and site building. My experience includes developing custom modules, custom services and plugins, custom theme templates, and using Acquia BLT and DrupalVM for continuous development. I also have experience implementing TDD with Drupal using phpunit and implementing code quality metrics using phpcs, phpmd, and xdebug for code coverage.
I have extensive experience using the IBM WebSphere Liberty Core Profile both in development and production use. My experience includes installation, setup, configuration, customization of features such as webCache, webCacheMonitor, distributedMap, and the ReST connector, development and deployment of applications, and staging to production methods. I designed custom code that integrates Jenkins CI server with Liberty to provide a full end-to-end CI process for development using Eclipse + Liberty tooling, Jenkins, and the Liberty server profile core.
I have extensive experience with versions 2.x through 8.5 including setup and administration via WAS admin console and wsadmin (both TCL and Jython), development and deployment of servlets, EJBs, Web services, shared libraries, and extension of core functionality via custom TAIs, CURs, and J2EE login modules.
