My Role in DotNetNuke

DotNetNuke Roles in 2007

As part of our recent DotNetNuke re-organization, every returning core team member was asked to commit to specific areas of responsibility.  This is something we have been very lax about enforcing in past years, but which is something that is desperately needed so that the entire team feels like we are all working together towards a set of common goals.  Also, as a co-founder of the DotNetNuke Corporation we are required to spend part of our time working on the Open Source side of the house.  Even though I have spent much of the last year trying to get the Marketplace and Review programs running, I still have an obligation, first and foremost, to make sure that we are doing our best to put out a great Open Source product.

In years past I have helped architect and code some portions of the DotNetNuke core framework and to some degree, time permitting, I will continue to assist in these efforts.  However, going forward, I will primarily be responsible for aiding our Project teams in architecting their solutions.  My job will be to provide guidance, and support where needed, to ensure that our projects are following consistent practices.  In this role I will also be trying to identify common features that span modules and working with the project leads to come up with a common API that can be added to the Core for use by all of our projects and 3rd party developers.

Project leads should feel free to speak with me about technical challenges they are facing so that we can find solutions that not only meet their specific needs, but that also are in keeping with the overall architectural direction of the platform.

Finally, my job will also require close coordination with Shaun, who will continue to head up architecture and coding of the core platform.  The aim is to ensure that I am providing appropriate guidance to the project teams and to ensure that the core platform continues to evolve in a manner that will aid module and skinning developers in meeting their common challenges.
